Hey Michael,

Thanks for your feedback. What would be the best way for an observer to monitor the status of the process? I noticed the proceedings of the Schema Working Group meetings were for members only is there a way for the public to review a summary? From what I can gather the best way might just be to follow the www-xml-schema-comments@w3.org mailing list. Thanks for your help.

The latest schedule I could find was on the working group site here http://www.w3.org/XML/2010/10/schema-charter.html . I noted that the review period for the Candidate Recommendation ended August 23, 2011 and that it would move towards a Proposed Recommendation as soon as the conditions were met (http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/CR-xmlschema11-1-20110721/). Does anyone know where I can go to find out the latest status in progress towards a Recommendation?  I did see that Saxonica and Xerces have some implementation of XSD 1.1 but not sure how complete it is. Any input on status or where to look would be greatly appreciated.
