This is good.

I don't follow.  What home page?  What document tab?

I assume the DITA Adoption TC's home page is
but I don't see any tabs.  I do see a list of links including one 
for "Documents", and if I click on that, I go to
where I don't see any mention of Best Practices.

So just what are we talking about here?

> 12 - In progress

> Decision to use the Best Practices section for all our Approved

And what are we talking about here?  What URL?

(I'm fine with the calling our documents best practices--I'm just
lost in terms of what web page we're talking about.)

> Action 1. Spec review on hold - revisiting a number of items on the

> New Action - Joann will suggest to the TC that all 1.3 DITA proposals

> Kristen proposes that we approve it today. Noted that there is new

> Moved by Kristen - Frank Miller Seconded - no objections - Approved.
> New Action - Kristen to post this article to Best Practices - .doc and
> pdf version.
> Action 3.  Please review this document one final time for next meeting

> New Action - Sowmya will run the sample code to verify.
> Action 4.  On HOLD - need decision on what is going to be done with
> General Task and the Task Model.
> There is the issue of conrefs  - today, if you use general task and

> What to do about this incompatibility issues - current suggestion by

> General consensus on the Adoption TC is that this is not a good idea.

That what is not a good idea?
