Hi folks,                                    Tuesday (14 September 2004)

[A cleanup pass in support of Harry Lewis' prototyping efforts at IBM.]

I have just posted the suite of WIMS XML schema, all of which validate
without warnings using XML SPY 2004, XRay 2.0, and XSV 2.5 (the free XML
Schema Validator) at:

    ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/schemas/schedule-20040914.xsd
    - Schedule XML Schema v0.90

    ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/schemas/resource-20040914.xsd
    - Resource XML Schema v0.50

    ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/schemas/alert-20040914.xsd
    - Alert XML Schema v0.30

    ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/schemas/report-20040914.xsd
    - Report XML Schema v0.30

    ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/schemas/events-20040914.xsd
    - Events XML Schema v0.60

Below are: (a) module dependencies; (b) change logs for all modules.

Cheers,
- Ira
