The XML Query Working Group and the XSL Working Group would like to 
announce the availability of an early version of the XML Query Test Suite 
(XQTS) at http://www.w3.org/XML/Query/test-suite/.

This version, XQTS 0.6.0, contains over 7000 test cases, about 60% of the 
tests that we anticipate it will have when it is finished. These test 
cases are based on the Last Call WD documents that were published on April 
4. XQTS contains an XML catalog document that describes the source 
documents and schemas that may be used and it describes each of the test 
cases. The test queries and expected results are contained in individual 
files. XQTS provides test cases for the features required for minimal 
conformance to XQuery and for XQuery's optional features. All of the 
functions in Functions and Operators are (or will be) tested.

Implementors are encouraged 1) to write a harness for this test suite and 
to test their implementations, 2) to report their results to the XML Query 
Working Group, and 3) to submit test cases to the XML Query Working Group 
to help us complete our coverage of XML Query 1.0. We have provided 
guidelines (linked from the page above) to assist implementors in all 
three of these steps. We have provided a list of features for which we 
would particularly like to see test case submissions.

We will be using Bugzilla to track and resolve bugs that are reported. We 
will, from time to time, publish new versions of XQTS that contain bug 
fixes and additional test cases. We ask that implementors send us their 
results early and then send us new results as the test suite evolves and 
as their implementations evolve.
