I did run a copy of your tests and noticed that my engine currently has 
trouble when a sh:Shape is a blank node (I will investigate later). If 
you turn the shape in simpleShape.ttl into a URI node for now, you will 
only have 2 remaining test failures. Those are due to the (already) 
discussed issue that the validation is performed over the shape 
definitions, and the SHACL graph currently requires sh:class to point at 


PS: If you are still having github access issues, maybe talk to Eric?
