Subject: DITA 1.3 Proposal Process

Title: DITA 1.3 Proposal Process
Hi --
One item I would strongly want to see added to the process. That a subcommittee whose work and members may be affected by the proposal is specifically notified and given time for a formal review.

This should have happened with the Glossary proposal in DITA 1.2. I missed it entirely and only later did we learn about the extent to which it was in competition with the hard work done by the Translation Subcommittee.

Special care should be taken to alert specialists about proposal that will affect them. We will have a Technical Communication Subcommittee, as soon as Gershon and I can find bandwidth.

The decisions about the Task Model affected Tech Comm considerably and again were not discussed. The generic task model was not in and of itself the issue but the use of the constraint model to create the strict task caused problems, as you know.

In this case, the way the proposal was implemented was not made clear (at least not to my recollection) until very late.
