Subject: Fw: [dita] Groups - Suggested updates for 1.0 specification (suggestedUpdates.html) uploaded

Hi all - Eric Sirois attempted to send this note to the list earlier, but
it bounced, so I'm forwarding it on his behalf. This concerns a schema bug
that should be added to the list of fixes for pre-1.0 -- the current
schemas do not allow users to specialize maps and add a domain. See the
note below for more details.

In addition, he reminded me about another bug found by Paul Antonov. In
tblDeclMod.xsd, for type entry.class, it specifies a default class value of
topic/tgroup instead of topic/entry.

I will add both of these to the list of bug fixes before posting a draft
list of final changes.

I found a small bug in the Map schema that needs to be resolved for DITA
1.1. The Map schema implementation is not consistent with the DITA 1.0

It's a small fix, but it allow users to specialize the Map schema properly.

The bug:
   Currently,  the domains attribute is defined in map.class in the file
mapMod.xsd.  It should actually be defined in the file map.xsd using the
redefine mechanism to include the domains attribute in the map.class
content model.

This bug will affect those who wish to specialize map and add an additional

The fix:  map.xsd and mapMod.xsd
   - remove the definition of the domains attribute from the content model
map.class in the file mapMod.xsd
     <xs:attribute name="domains" type="xs:string" default="(map

 - Add the domains attribute, via the redefined mechanism, in the file
   <xs:redefine schemaLocation="../../../mapMod.xsd" >
      <xs:complexType name="map.class">
                  <xs:extension base="topic.class">
                        <xs:attribute name="domains" type="xs:string"
default="(map mapgroup-d)"/>
