Subject: RE: [dita-learningspec] FW: [dita] DITA 1.2 packages [updated yet again]

I think you're asking a critical question. How will the TC provide instructions for DITA users (who may not be professional programmers) to create shells to include domains that are not included in a package. What documentation is being planned to explain how to use all of these pieces to create a coherent whole? What if the editor one uses does not include a particular domain? Who will provide the instructions for adding a domain to Arbortext Editor, XMetal, etc? Will everyone be expected to engage professional services or a consultant?
I hope that the committee members will address these questions. Or, that we can get the Adoption SC up and working so that we are able to better focus on adoption issues rather than technical issues.

My gut reaction is yes, those domains should be included, but I guess I’m not clear on what the alternative looks like. If the shells do NOT include those domains, what has to be done in order to use elements like


·         codeblock

·         filepath

·         userinput

·         uicontrol


We plan to use them, and I imagine other groups writing training for software would.

Resolved Questions:


I.                     Should the Learning and Training topics and ditabase doctype shells include the software, ui, and programming domains?  John thinks they should, but will check with the LTC subcommittee.


This issue is settled until we hear back from the LTC subcommittee.  Need to get confirmation back from the sub-committee.
