XML-schema has an "import" facility to modularize schema descriptions.
It is very similar to the "import" facilities you know from Python
(and a lot of other languages) -- and has very similar purpose.

Again, this looks like a bug in the WSDL description of the
web service.

To understand the problem better, you should look at the
corresponding traceback (as always). It will tell you
where the "ValueError" comes from. At the corresponding
code location, you should learn whether "{endpoint address}"
is the literal value of the bad url or an indication given
by "suds" where it has found the bad url.

In the first case, search the WSDL for "endpoint address" -
and then get it fixed.
In the second case, the bad value likely comes from
the "location" attribute of a "soap:address" element below
"wsdl:service" (again in your WSDL). Again, get it fixed, then.
