DITA Technical Committee Meeting Minutes: 8 August 2006

(Recorded by Gershon Joseph <gershon@tech-tav.com>)

The DITA Technical Committee met on Tuesday, 8 August 2006 at 08:00am PT
for 60 minutes.

1.  Roll call 

    We have quorum.

2.  Approve minutes from previous meeting.
    http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/dita/200607/msg00072.html (25 July)
    (Note: the 1 August 2006 meeting lacked quorum--it was not a regular 
    business meeting)

    Accepted by acclamation (moved by Don, seconded by JoAnn)

3.  Business:

    1.  ITEM: indexing clarification--Paul Grosso

        --ACTION-- Form task force to to meet offline ASAP and try to provide 
        the TC with a well documented proposal for discussion at next week's 
        meeting. Members: Paul, Chris, JoAnn (chair) Bruce, Yas, Paul Prescod.
        Anyone else interested should contact JoAnn.

    2.  ITEM: references to ditabases without an explicit topicid (resumed from 
        last week)
        http://wiki.oasis-open.org/dita/TopicId (latest on subject)
        http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/dita/200607/msg00051.html (Robert's summary)

        To be continued next week.

    3.  ITEM: look at proposed schedule based on OASIS timeline; start review 
        comment collecting.

    4.  ITEM: ditabase DTD should include the new glossary topic type (not yet 
        in current ditabase)
        This seems to be indicated in
        http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/download.php/17513/Issue14a.html Glossary proposal:

        These glossary definition topics can be provided within a single
        ditabase file for the simple case or in separate files. The latter
        approach facilitates reuse because deliverables can assemble the
        glossary for the terminology used in content by selecting from a
        pool of available glossary definitions.

        DECISION: Robert to implement this changed (Don moved, Paul Grosso 
        seconded, no objections)

        DECISION: Robert to change value of DITAArchVersion attribute to 1.1.

    5.  REPORT: Update from JoAnn on DITA Translation Subcommittee deliverables

        Translation SC is currently finalizing the following best practice 

        1. Indexing best practice

        2. Leveraging legacy translation memory when moving to DITA

        Other documents under development include a while paper or committee draft
        on using XLIFF with DITA.
