It's a little more difficult to provide the WFS test data in shape or mif files since each vendor may have a different way of mapping the data into GML.  For instance, which field maps to the GML fid attribute?

Since any non-GML format would likely have to be manipulated before it could be used anyway, there are no plans for the CITE team to provide the data in any other format.  However, some vendors will provide the data in a format suitable for their product.  For instance, Geoserver (http://geoserver.sourceforge.net, the WFS reference implementation) provides scripts to build the dataset in a PostGIS database format.

Hope this helps,

A couple of weeks ago, I completed the WMS 1.1.1 compliance tests, so
started looking into the tests for the 1.0.0 WFS.

One of the things I found useful/helpful in the WMS tests was that they
provided the test data in both Shape and MapInfo formats, two of the
that our web mapping engine currently supports, in addition to GML. Are
there any plans to offer the WFS test data in other vendors' formats as

Maybe I should've directed this to the CITE Public Discussion Forum, but
since there doesn't appear to be much activity there, I thought maybe
of you guys might already have some experience with these tests.

As always, thanks in advance.
