Isn't it one of the benefits of OSS trying to avoid this type of (expensive)
overhead? Would you be interested joining a project as a volunteer for the
sole purpose of doing this task? As I understand things right now, eveyone
contributes finding compliance problems as well as adding new feature in the
code pool. Building an automated test conformance suite would be a nice
thing to have though. Basically what JCK is to Java would be really sweet.
