Subject: Fw: Do You Have the DITA 1.3 Examples Assembled into a Map/Topic Structure?
Relating to the mention that Scott had pulled together a repository of all of the example code from the DITA 1.3 specification, I am passing this along (with his permission). It was mentioned at the last meeting that it might be a good idea for DITA Adoption to help work on expanding the list of examples in order to make them more robust. "Better examples" is a common refrain at the DITA Listening Sessions, which I believe makes this a priority.
I think we might be able to provide some structure to what is here, and not only expand this ourselves, but also put out a call to the community to see if others might be willing to pitch in and help expand it and encapsulate best practices.
Let's discuss this at the next DITA Adoption meeting.

I created topics for each example in the spec. They are located here:
I haven’t pulled them into a single document for testing, however. Many of the map elements are in separate ditamaps so they could be tested independently.
The committee never caught on to this idea for testing, so many of the topics aren’t fully valid, as these examples are literally pulled from the spec, but xref or link to non-existent resources.
I’d still like to change that…
Hope this helps!

Hey there Scott:
Earlier, during today's meeting, I think you said that you had attempted to assemble all of the DITA 1.3 examples into a single document, is that correct?
If so, would you mind passing along what you have?
With all of the talk recently about hosting OASIS items on GitHub, and wondering if a proposal for beefing up a separately-maintained examples document(s) might be met with favour by the TC.
