Regarding your request that we provide the AD schema as a single text file in addition to the annotated PDF, we have provided the AD schema in a text file for your use in the near term (attached zip file). This text file will fall under the same IP notice as the regular documentation, which you can see at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc197980.aspx.

The documentation team also has a work item to deliver a comprehensive solution that will enable easier access to schema in the overall documentation set in the longer term. The specifics of this solution, how and when it will be delivered are still under discussion, the goal is to provide the schemas in an easily consumable form for use with a given specification.

Subject: AD schema outsid the PDF?

I'm looking for correction assistance in the form of improved access to the documentation.

The AD schema documents (MS-ADA1 etc) are extensive, and apparently match that which you can download from an AD server.  However, I wanted to extract the schema from the docs (to verify that the docs are correct, and because the terms of use on the docs are very clear).

I've tried things like pdftotext over the PDFs (followed by a python script to munge it), but while I have this almost working, it seems sub-optimal.  Would it be possible to include the schema as a single text file, as well as the annotated PDF?
