If I change a web-service, which results in a change to the XSD, what is the best method of rolling out these changes to the consumers of the web service?

Does anybody post the XSD on the web, so the XML can be validated off the web at runtime? Or is it good practice to have the XSD reside locally on system?

An XSD (XML Schema Definition) is only a part of the WS definition. Usually WS are defined in terms of WSDL - is that what you are talking about?

Most WS engines can serve up the WSDL automatically (e.g. by appending "?WSDL" to the URL), but that's usually turned off in production mode for security reasons. So you might want to email it to customers instead.
