New location of schema files (XSD)

The validation of our IFC files does not work anymore, since the XSD-files do not exist anymore on the domain www.buildingsmart-tech.org.

Where is the new location for this file?

http://www.buildingsmart-tech.org/ifcXML/IFC4/final http://www.buildingsmart-tech.org/ifcXML/IFC4/final/ifcXML4.xsd

Do I have to change my schema locations or will there be a redirect?

The new location seems to be this:
https://standards.buildingsmart.org/IFC/RELEASE/IFC4/FINAL/XML/ifcXML4.xsd

The request to the “http://www.buildingsmart-tech.org/ifcXML/IFC4/final http://www.buildingsmart-tech.org/ifcXML/IFC4/final/ifcXML4.xsd” is redirected to https://standards.buildingsmart.org but not to the file directly.

I get " Sorry! That page doesn’t seem to exist."

The file “https://standards.buildingsmart.org/IFC/RELEASE/IFC4/FINAL/XML/ifcXML4.xsd” is not exactly the same as the file “http://www.buildingsmart-tech.org/ifcXML/IFC4/final http://www.buildingsmart-tech.org/ifcXML/IFC4/final/ifcXML4.xsd”, but the changes seems to be minor.

Hi @jwouellette

I think these are good to implement in standards sub-domain website:

  1. build a dictionary list (unlike @pipauwel’s advise) which all can find dictionaries and files easily (instead of searching the sub-domain context on Google)

  2. Update webmasters
