Dear RIF implementors,

We would like to move RIF to the next step (that is: proposed 
recommendation) as soon as possible. Therefore, we need to evaluate the
existing implementations, since our criterion is based on them: we would
appreciate folks who have something running sending us their test results
from time to time (that is, wrt the RIF test suites [1]).

We would be glad if, before November 13, you could let us know, either
the results of your tests, if you gave it a try already; or when you
expect to do tests if you did not do them already.

That will help us check if our timeline is feasible (our target is to move
the RIF specifications to proposed recommendations before the end of the

Another information that would be most helpful is the list of data types
and builtins from DTB that you do not implement (or that you do implement,
whichever is shortest): that will help us evaluate RIF-DTB's status wrt

We've also defined a simple XML format for submitting test results, to
help us assess both the quality of the implementations and the quality
of the test suite (including the proposed tests). Details:


Thanks to everyone who is giving this a try.

One last thing: we have started a developers forum: public-rif-dev@w3.org

Best regards,

Christian de Sainte Marie, on behalf of the W3C RIF WG
