+1

I’d be very happy to see proposed 1.2 tests integrated in some way in the rdf-tests repo. I had previously constructed a set of proposed tests for #32 (xsd operators for durations/dates/times) and committed them to a fork of the sparql-12 repo:

https://github.com/kasei/sparql-12/tree/xsd_datetime_duration/tests/xsd_functions <https://github.com/kasei/sparql-12/tree/xsd_datetime_duration/tests/xsd_functions>

but it would make it easier to use with existing SPARQL test harnesses if it were integrated directly in rdf-tests.

Thanks,
Greg
