Subject: RE: [dita] Spec chunking proposal

This Wiki page has our understanding from last September about the number of specification documents and what they would contain:




Back then there were 9 separate specification documents on the list:


The 4 from Michael’s list:

Base Arch Spec

Base Language Reference

Tech content (combined arch and language ref)

Learning and training (combined arch and language ref)


                Specification Overview (the thing that OASIS really approves)

                Utility Domain Specializations (combined arch and language ref)

                Software and programming (combined arch and language ref)

                Machine Industry (combined arch and language ref)

                Classification, controlled values, and Taxonomies (arch and language ref)

Subject: [dita] Spec chunking proposal


Here's my recall of how we were going to try chunking the specs - basing it on the DTD/XSD packaging decision here:

So for three doctypes packages, I'm thinking four spec documents:

Base package:
- architectural spec
- language spec for topic/map (doctypes/domains listed in package)

Tech content package:
- single spec, combining arch/overview with language spec for doctypes/domains in package

Learning and training package:
- single spec, combining arch/overview with lang spec for doctypes/domains in package
