Description Lukas Kuklinek 2010-05-26 10:12:56 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #596277 +++

Description of problem:
The xmllint tool (or equivalent library call) refuses a valid XML schema.
The schema contains an abstract complex type with simple content that is
derived by another type, which introduces an restriction on its content.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.7.6 and 2.7.7 at least
Actual results: schema fails to compile.
Expected results: schema compiles fine.

So there have been no progress upstream, basically I didn't dig the XSD
reference to try to understand what was right or wrong so I think it's too
late for 6.0 GA at this point in any case, retargetting to 6.1
