Minutes for April 18, 2016 DITA Adoption FASC Meeting

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

=DITAweb UI and Metadata=
Mark reported that there is still ongoing work reworking the UI for the DITAweb implementation for dita.xml.org, and that they are still exploring how to use the existing taxonomy within the interface

Mark gave a brief demo of how metadata can be added by the person while writing an entry/article, but that it is also able to automatically find keywords within the existing piece and suggest those to the user; this is still a work in progress, and Congility has a developer dedicated to making this feature work, Mark also pointed out how it is now possible to set the content type (i.e. "article") and the intended audience for a given piece

The UI is still being worked on for things like Events; the plan is to have a workable version for inputting data for next week. Mark will send a list of metadata for showing how this can be added to existing articles.

=Porting Existing Users=
Mark asked whether it is possible to get a dump of the existing user database from the existing Drupal system, primarily the ones that have specific contributor URLs
Don pointed out that "roles" on the existing website within Drupal shows validated users as well as those who are blocked. This currently consists of 183 pages of users with 20 users listed per page.

=Action Items=
Mark and Richard:
- work on implementing metadata within the website, with the plan on having a finalized (or nearly so) version to distribute to the other members of the group so that they can start implementing it within draft content intended for the website
