   o Wiki page: "What do people (really) mean when they say "DITA is
too complex"?

Don: What do we want to accomplish here? We can continue taking
input, but when do we start formulating actions? Su-Laine: We could
start a new section of the wiki on solutions to the problem. Michael:
cross-refer solutions to problems. Kris: some solutions are already in
the page. Michael: yes, we should abstract them out.
Michael, Paul: DITA lite has relevance. . . .
Just a minor point, but I didn't say anything on this topic today.

I'm not sure who other than Michael was part of the DITA Lite
but it wasn't me.

Thanks, Paul--noted that you were not in on that discussion. During the "too complex" discussion. Michael made the point that "DITA Lite" (topic DTD with few/no domains) was contributed as part of the DITA 1.2 packaging. 

What "DITA Lite" entails, however, is a separate discussion that I'll open in a new email. For the sake of the minutes, the statement above should correct what was said today.
