Subject: [dita] DITA 1.2 specification documents
Here is the list of
planned DITA 1.2 specification documents as of the last time we talked about
a) DITA 1.2 Base
Architectural Specification (introduction, topic, map, and metadata markup,
processing including delayed resolution, specialization including constraints).
b) DITA 1.2 Base
Language Reference (map, topic, metadata including delayed resolution, map
c) DITA 1.2 Utility
Domain Specializations Architecture and Language Reference (utilities,
highlighting, and hazard statement domains).
d) DITA 1.2 xNAL Domain
Specializations Architecture and Language Reference.
e) DITA 1.2 Technical
Content Architecture and Language Reference (concept, task, reference,
f) DITA 1.2 Software,
Programming, and User Interface Domains Specializations Architecture and
g) DITA 1.2 Book Architecture
and Language Reference (bookmap).
h) DITA 1.2 Learning and
Training Content Architecture and Language Reference.
i) DITA 1.2 Machine
Industry Architecture and Language Reference.
j) DITA 1.2 Semantic
Linking, Controlled Values, and Taxonomies Architecture and Language Reference.
k) DITA 1.2
Processing Guidelines and Examples (non-normative).
(e) might or might not be renamed.
(f) might or might not have some doctype shells added.
would still like to create item (k), but suspect that we should drop it from
the DITA 1.2 work and do it later as a “best practice” or similar document that
is non-normative and outside of the DITA 1.2 Specification.
recent discussions it is possible that we may want to combine some of these
items, but exactly how isn’t clear to me at this point.
