We are working with an IdP whose metadata is failing schema validation.
shibd -t returns the following:

2020-04-09 14:15:00 ERROR OpenSAML.MetadataProvider.XML : metadata 
instance failed manual validation checking: EmailAddress must have 

The IdP, is unable to modify their metadata, at this time.  Therefore,
after looking at the documentation here:

I've modified our MetadataProvider line, so that it looks like this:
(also, I've removed the IdP's domain name for this mailing list

<MetadataProvider type="XML" validate="false"
 backingFilePath="backup.xml" reloadInterval="28800">

However, shibd -t continues to give us the above error message.  Can
anybody explain what I'm doing wrong with my validate="false"?
