I'm new to OAI but I think I have noticed an inconsistency in the
referencing of the .xsd files.

I am working on implementing OAI in PHP and as a start I am working on the
response for the Identify verb.

In my response to the request I had the following...


as indicated in the current beta2.  Yet when I tried to validate this
using http://www.w3.org/2001/03/webdata/xsv there was an error indicating
the mapping of the schemaLocation was not right.  Looking at the .xsd file


had no trailing "/".  Removing the "/" from my response file cleared up
the problem.

So, should there be a trailing "/" or not?  If you look in the OAI-PMH.xsd
file it has a trailing "/" and thus works with what is in the beta2

Finally, anyone know when there will be a 2.0 version of the repository
explorer at http://www.purl.org/NET/oai_explorer?

Thanks (if i'm not making any sense let me know....)
