You are invited to join a project to an open-source XSLT-based compiler for XML Schema.

The XML Schema "compiler" project intends to provide a reference
implementations (and potentially other) of schema processing to produce:

a) analysis of errors in the source schema.
b) a compiled form of the schema that contains the expansion of inclusions,
imports, complexType derivations, etc, in a form that closely related to the
information set necessary for a parser to validate a conforming document.
The compiled form should help reduce the potential for hacking by attacking
resources used in the schema definition.
c) transliteration (as much as possible) of XML schema constraints to other
validation mechanisms such as Schematron or RELAX.
d) generation of documentation for schemas.
e) provide a forum to discuss schema related issues.
f) provide feedback to the W3C XML Schema working group.
g) assist the development of schema-aware (and/or compiled schema-aware)
parsers.

The project is hosted at SourceForge at https://sourceforge.net/project/?group_id=4826 (project XSDComp)

The mailing list should be active in a few hours and I'll be posting the first files to the CVS system this afternoon.   Please visit the public forums to introduce yourself (in the developer) forum
or to see an overview in the Open Discussion forum.

Have a great holiday.

p.s. There were some missing attributes (such as a name on attribute) in the HTMLHelp for Schema that I published yesterday.  It was done by a quick XSLT transform that converted the schema for schema
back into the May 99 working draft that my inhouse schema doc tool still uses.  I'll probably redo it in a week or so based on the work here.
