Well, hell, Carol. We can reopen the decision. Got any good ideas? I'm afraid I assumed that you would not want to change the name.

I must admit, I'm kind of disappointed you decided against a new name for the site. Now seems like the perfect time.

Also, it would be great to have a new site logo that incorporates the bird.

Ah well, it's up to y'all.

Subject: [dita-adoption-fasc] Minutes for February 8, 2016 DITA Adoption FASC Meeting
To: "dita-adoption-fasc@lists.oasis-open.org" <dita-adoption-fasc@lists.oasis-open.org>

Present: Don Day, Keith Schengili-Roberts, Kris Eberlein
Absent: Mark Poston

Gave Kris a "tour" of the existing MindMap / draft taxonomic hierarchy for the website. Along the way she made some excellent point that we need descriptions for most/all of the nodes, so that people are clear what the labels/metadata will mean in context.

Other discussions:

- suggested that when a version of the new website is launched that those who have product- or service-related content on the existing website should have a deadline to migrate their own content
- need for guidelines for content we want to have on the new website, including:
  - key message: website is here to promote DITA (not other, competing methodologies)
  - content is filtered by DITA thought leaders
  - dita.xml.org this is somewhere you can go for curated, accurate, good content on DITA

Discussion on possibly re-branding dita.xml.org:
- Kris made the good comment that we should concentrate on rebranding the user experience rather than the name
  - existing tagline is good
  - logo (and colour scheme) could do with some work ("lacks nuance")
  - in the end, it was agreed that changing the name of dita.xml.org was not a high priority

Action items:
- Comment/describe definitions for hierarchy nodes
- Kris to send to all her previous research on dita.xml.org website
- Kris to re-examine existing website and derive Subject Scheme for Products and Services
