Yeah that was exactly was I was talking about on the summit. A validator on the web could be very nice for checking XMPP services (working like a proxy, gathering/summarize info, errors etc.) for e.g. clients. 

But as I was stating we also need a job (e.g. every time we commit an example, xsd or a XEP) that checked if the given example is valid according to the given XSD or that the XSD is just valid. I did this for a year ago with our repository, but that was almost by hand using xmllint. I would help off basic faults in the schema and the semantics in the examples.

Oohh by the way, I would gladly help out, even though I am currently situated in the review group. :-)
