      I tried changing
      <element name="project">
      <element name="project">

      in the generated RNG schema, and then used trang to translate it into,
      | element project {
      attribute * { text },

      But that wasn't enough.

      Here's an earlier thread on this list:

      Norm Walsh suggests using a wrapper grammar to add the xsi:
      attributes. That's probably a good idea, but I'll try modifying the
      grammar first to see if I can make it work... hm... changing the
      attribute declaration to:
      | element project {
      attribute xsi:schemaLocation { text },
      gave me the error message
      File mode specification error: (error "Undefined prefix xsi at position 136 in /media/sda8/bangste/p4/depot/ccr/MAIN/maven.rnc")

      Ok I changed (half-guessing, and using nxml to expand what's allowed)
      the attribute declaration in the maven.rng file to look like this:
      <element name="project">
      <name ns="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">schemaLocation</name>

      Then ran the schema through trang to get the following in maven.rnc:
      default namespace = "http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"
      namespace ns1 = "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

      start =
      | element project {
      attribute ns1:schemaLocation { text },
      (element parent {

      And that's enough to make the Maven POM files validate. Thanx!

      I guess the next step will be to figure out what's meant by an
      extension grammar, but for now this quick hack works for me.

      Thanx again!
