[CITE-Forum] WFS 1.0.0 test failures do not provide descriptive error messages

I've been trying on and off to get our WFS implementation through the 
conformance tests. For WFS 1.0.0, our server passes the basic tests at 
http://cite.opengeospatial.org/tsOGC/. With the newer TEAM engine tests, 
however, it fails all the DescribeFeatureType tests, apart from those 
that are expected to produce a service exception.

The test engine does not return any kind of error message whatsoever for 
the failed tests. It simply echoes the response that it got from our 
server and then says "Result: Failed". I've validated the output of our 
server both using XML Spy and an internal Java app based on JDOM.

Has anyone by any chance encountered similar problems? Without more 
detailed feedback from the test engine, I haven't a clue on how we can 
get our tests to succeed. I already reported this problem via the e-mail 
address listed on the site (compliance at opengeospatial.org) some time 
ago, but never got a reply.

Thanks in advance for any comments or suggestions.

Best regards,
