Subject: RE: [dita] DITA Technical Committee Meeting Minutes: 2 January 2007

This one won't make the 16th, Paul. But we've got good accountability for
the past week.  Robert and I spent many hours working on the Language
Spec--see the greatly revised comment record at
http://wiki.oasis-open.org/dita/Fix_list_for_1%2e1_Language_Spec_draft .
The book is building cleanly now, if anyone is interested in an advance
copy to begin looking at the items marked as completed. Remaining are some
open questions that I'll bring up for resolution, and the mechanics of
showing change regions (it will need to be formatted by the IBM system
again in order to show change bars, as DITA OT's PDF tools do not currently
show revisions). But it is also very much improved from the reviews of Alan
and Robert--otherwise it would have been going out with numerous omissions
and errors that had not been fixed (in many cases not even reported) yet.

Robert also got the page count down below 500 pages (on the DITA OT test
runs) thanks to some reorganization to minimize repetition of common
attribute descriptions.

Did I miss it, or are we still waiting for the lang spec?

It's too late now for a vote on the 16th.
