I thought I fixed the xs:string problem which you previuosly reported. 
I'll doublecheck.

Here is my view on the purpose of the testing effort. At this point we are 
really debugging the spec. It is reasonable for a given implementation to 
fail some tests. We are not certifying implementations. However, if no 
implementation can successfully implement some feature, then we need to 
understand why, and potentially alter the spec.

Interoperability is one way to test the correctness of implementations 
since it is unlikely that they will possess bugs that precisely cancel 
eachother. Even if just one implementation implements a feature, we can 
visually inspect it for correctness.

Component Model Results

Warning: Your file, documents.zip, contains more than 32 files after 
decompression and cannot be scanned.

Hi all,
I have just finished generating the component model dumps of the wsdl 
good documents.
I just picked the test-suite.xml file and generated my test script 
through XSLT. Fairly quick in fact :-)
Please find attached the results.
Two side notes:
    - There is still a problem with 3 testsuite wsdl files 
XSImport-2G/reservationItems.wsdl, XSImport-3G/reservationItems.wsdl). 
All of these files make reference to XSD data types through QNames but 
with a wrong namespace. I have fixed these files locally (type="string" 
is now type="xs:string") and produced a dump with these fixed files. I 
added the fixed wsdl files in the attached zip file.
    - Our implementation still fails on the Import-2G example as it 
raises an error when trying to create two components of the same type 
with the same ns+name, the reason being that we have not implemented the 
component equivalence rules. Anyway, the parser still produces a 
component model dump.
I have a process question related to the last point: do we really need 
two interoperable implementations for every aspect of the spec, e.g. the 
equivalence rules ? Or is it sufficient to document the reasons behind 
different behaviors ?
Hope this helps anyway,
