Subject: RE: Milestone: OASIS DITA TC approves Committee Draft of DITA 1.1 materials

Hi everyone,

  Just a couple of notes - first, please note the new cover page format at:
and documented at: 

Since the TC is currently in IPR Transition mode, and the transition will not be complete until 20 March, the TC should
continue to use the Legacy IPR notice. There is a new paragraph added to the bottom of the Notices section relating to
Trademarks. The paragraph contains a link to the actual Trademark Policy - any appropriate trademarks should be noted.

The second note is related to formats: the formal Public Review submission must contain links to 3 formats: DITA source,
XHTML, and PDF. 

Let me know if you have any questions or need further assistance.

> The links below are for the approval drafts of record, with 
> PDFs produced using IBM's formatter. The next step for us is 
> to produce PDF versions that include the required OASIS cover

> production, using a cover page override that has been 
> contributed by Gershon Joseph. We will coordinate that 
> production with Gershon as quickly as possible so that we can 
> make these available for the public review.
> By the way, anyone will be able to use the provided source to 
> produce preferred output versions (using the DITA Open 
> Toolkit or other conformant
> tools) for early implementation or testing. The override for 
> the OASIS cover page will be specific to the DITA Open 
> Toolkit and the XEP-based output plugin.
> We will have final links for the public review after we 
> produce the OASIS versions and upload all the materials under
