Subject: Minutes for March 14, 2016 DITA Adoption FASC Meeting

(Sorry for not sending this out sooner!)

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

Mark reported on his progress in this area:
- has taken content from MindMeister and placed its contents into a specific taxonomy
  management tool called PoolParty (https://www.poolparty.biz/taxonomy-thesaurus-management/); he will now work exclusively in this tool
 - is able to create relationships between items and can export as RDF; Mark has created a script
   that converts this exported RDF to DITA Subject Scheme

- within DITAWeb the taxonomy also creates "dummy topic" at a specific URL
  (e.g. http://dita.xml.org/taxonomy/bookmap), which in addition to being a possible search result
  page for articles containing "bookmap" in its metadata, also has space for a glossary definition
  - demonstrated how synonymous terms can be created in DITAWeb
 - Mark is investigating suitability of a third-party program for automatically classifying content
   against the taxonomy; this will not be ready in time for DITA North America conference

=Content Conversion=
- Mark was able to demonstrate how several recent DITA Adoption white papers (all of the DITA 1.3
  ones) would appear within the draft version of the website
 - need more of the white papers, preferably in DITA format
 - aspects of DITA 1.3 can be used as well, in particular the XML Mention domain elements
- Keith talked about efforts between himself and Don at converting material from old website;
  Don  has made significant strides in pulling volumes of existing content from the
  Knowledgebase and converting them to DITA
 - need to coordinate clean-up of this content prior to migration
 - Mark also mentioned that we can start embedding keywords into the converted material
   based on the draft taxonomy

=Action Items=
Mark and Richard:
- continue work on UI and integrating taxonomy into draft website
- send Subject Scheme to Keith and Don so that we can start tagging metadata in converted 
- ask for the other DITA Adoption whitepapers in DITA format
- coordinate with Don on converted content
- Ask Leigh White for sample chapters in DITA format from her book
