1. DITA 1.3 progress

Progress between 19-26 February 2013: https://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/dita/201302/msg00061.html

Update on deadlines: https://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/dita/201302/msg00062.html

Proposal #13056 - Robert expects to have an update by next TC meeting
Proposal #1310? - ChrisN will have update on that soon.
Hopefully, we'll be discussing both of these within the next few weeks

Kris will reach out to TC members responsible for a single proposal
to get deadlines for those proposals.
In response to question from Mark Myers, TC reviewed requirements for a Stage 3 proposal; it needs to be complete except for 'contains/contained by' tables; if a proposal owner needs feedback in preparing it, they should contact appointed reviewers or send mail to the TC list for feedback, prior to the item coming up for discussion in the TC..

Kris asked that submitters provide 'real' examples where examples are called for, ths accuracy and completeness of these affect their eventual incorporation in the spec, as well as our decisions about the proposals.

Don broughtup the issue of the status of the Yahoo dita-users group; He would prefer that this group continue to be the one used by users, to avoid fragmenting the community, and the problem with including angle brackets in text appears to be fixed. MichaelP agreed, though with the caveat that if another problem comes up, and Yahoo responds as slowly as they did with this, we should make a change.
TC discussion generally agreed with this position; folks will do some more testing of the Yahoo list to be sure the problem is fixed.

3. DITA 1.3 proposals, stage 3: https://wiki.oasis-open.org/dita/DITA_1.3_Proposals-stage3

Ready to assign reviewers
Ready for Discussion
Ready for vote: Voting options are "Yes," "No," and "Abstain"

4. 11:30 AM ET: Presentation and discussion with Christian Lieske and Felix Sasaki about ITS locNote

This is in response to TC's question; how well is ITS @locnote supported in translation tools?
Background: As an outgrowth of active discussions about product names, reuse, and translation, JoAnn Hackos suggested that we consider adding a mechanism comparable to its:locNote to DITA. Eliot Kimber proposed some options, which we discussed, but TC members very much wanted to know how well its:locNote was supported by current translation tools. The
presentation was followed by a brief discussion

Helpful links provided by Christian:

1. Intro to W3C ITS (includes info on relationship to XLIFF, and use of ITS in tools/frameworks)
Most relevant are pages: 21 ? 23, 40 ? 42, 52 ? 54 and 63
2. The Best Practices document that explains what XML Application Designers (DTD writers etc.) may want to consider, and an example of to how to use DITA and ITS
2. Usages Scenarios for Processes based on ITS 2.0 Data Categories
3. Data Category that allows content to be either extracted as in-line codes or as sub-flows (independent translation units)
4. Data Category that allows content to be marked as ?term? (and to be associated with additional information)
