Submitter's message
DITA TC meeting
5 February 2013
Minutes taken by Seth Park

Roll call: quorum met

Meeting minutes, seconded by Stan D.; no objections; minutes approved by acclamation.

1. DITA 1.3 proposals, stage 2: http://wiki.oasis-open.org/dita/DITA_1.3_Proposals-triage

Proposal 13116: Add the element to the content of title, xref, and other title-like elements (Kimber)


Discussion: Eliot?s analysis reveals that the semantic purpose of ?cite? is more similar to ?keyword? than a traditional ?xref?. No objections and the example provided by Eliot demonstrates a good valid usecase for adding ?cite? to title-like elements

Action: ready for vote; move to the agenda for next time.

2. Continuing discussion on product names, terms, and reuse: WWW3 @its:locnote

New e-mail: https://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/dita/201301/msg00054.html (Tivy, 29 Jan 2013)

Discussion: Eliot?s email outlines the options, including use of ?foreign? or ?data?

Kris requested examples and feedback from a translation service provider. Thilo to have discussion with a colleague and ask him to attend.
The enumerated options raised several questions.

3. SAP product name variability/translation, etc.

Use of DITA ?strings? for stem sentences and answers (true/false) or ?select one of the following below? ?pick an item from column A and column B?. Works well for these kind of things; 800 strings reused directly and well today.

Units of time don?t translate.
Works with ?generated text? not ?authored text? (Kris summarized)

4. Continuing discussion about product names, terms, and reuse: DITA and translation workbenchs

New e-mail: https://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/dita/201301/msg00055.html (Tivy, 30 Jan 2013)

Kris: asked Michael about last week?s minutes about engaging with TMS

MP: complexity of conref; thinking through challenges.

Kris: general gap in knowledge around reuse mechanisms for swapping out product names, etc. Other complexity when reusing strings across two different products.

Kris: not likely we?ll be able to make any changes to address the need in 1.3.

Seth asked whether a TSP would be motivated to solve these challenges? Can we rely on the open market to find a solution? Kris says that the open market has not addressed it yet and the TC should be able to supply enough information to assist the open market in finding a workable solution.

5. New item: DITA TC processes for creating OASIS-branded documents (ran out of time; on agenda for next week)

Overview of DITA 1.2 work and where we are now
State of DITA-OT plug-in for generating CHM, XHTML, zipped XHTML, and PDF
Need for redesign of "Contain" and "Contains by" tables
Need of method for generating "Contain" and "Contains by" tables
