Overview by Kris of Robert's tables of doctypes, domains, & packages; he tried to have these rerpresent what's already in SVN, so they don't reflect what we may actually want, but what's already there. He lists particular domains shipped in particular packages.

Kris; ditabase needs to include deliverytarget domain
Kris; one question is; what are the new domains, and what shells do they need to go into for 1.3?
Some thoughts/questions wrt the tables and new 1.3 domains:
- ditavalref -> this should be in all maps, but not topics?
- MathML/equations domains - this is now in all TechC0mm topics except MI onee; is there a reason it shouldn't be in ditabase? and should it be in MI task?
[Michael; I can't think of any reason, but I have no exp in MI area]
- markupDomain/xmlDomain - should this be in ditabase?

Kris; wrt ditabase, in general, i think ditabase needs all domains
Kris; JohnH; what do you think should be in L&T
John; we decided to keep most domains out of L&T by default, so as not to overwhelm users.
Mark; I agree; it's easy to turn them on.
Kris; what about release mgmt domain?
John; yes, that should be included.
Kris; right now, rel. mgmt. is in all topics, but not in maps
John; if we're going to include it at all, i'd have it in map also.
Mark; my concern is to be consistent with other domains
Kris; do we want it in, even though most people will crete their own shells.?
John; rel. mgmt. seems to be a different type of domain from others.

Kris; wrt SVG domain - add to ditabase and MI task?
Kris; some domains were left out of subjectscheme; I usually add them back because it's useful, especially for XML mention domain.
Other observations:
- xmldomain is only in bookmap, not in TC map
- glossref is only in basic tech content map, should it be in bookmap?
(Mark / John, do you have any comments on what shells are using what for L&T domain?)
John; the question here is wrt adding learningdomain2 with base2; this looks straightforwrd.

Robert; everything in the tables is straightforward, but 2 ways to look at it:
- look at domain who doesn't include it?
- doctypes together; which ones match, which ones dont...

Kris; rel mgmt needs to be added to other TC maps. Other than ditabase, were there other obvious missing pieces?
Robert; most we talked about last week,
Robert; pr-d and sfw-d domains; I'm pretty sure they're deliberately left out of MI task; Chris Kravogel wanted it to be'sparse'
Kris; for those building shells for clients, are there things you're usually adding, rather than subtracting? or vice versa?
Robert; this is intended to be a clear picture of where things are, to clarify current state. It's a dita topic, so it could be put in the spec.
Kris; it would be good for everyone to go through the list of 1.3 domains, and see if you think they need to be here.
Robert; xmlmention belongs in the techcomm map
Kris; so we probably want it in bookmap as well.
Robert; if no one else has opinion, i'd add xmlmention to bookmap and map, I'd leave SVG out, and add it only if soeone has a strong opinion, What about subjectscheme for XMLmention?
Kris; Robert, where you have things bolded, is that where something's missing that should be there?
Robert; yes, so rel mgmt should be in bookmap? And what about glossref in map?
Maybe we should leave it out?
Kris; this refers to abbrev domain, but you can't findit
BobT; also this isn't using the correct precise terminology for bookmap, and we need to add xmlmention, markup, and rel mgmt. XMLmention needs to be in ditabase; ditabase should have parity with all other topics.

Robert: wrt table 3; have John and Mark looked at them?
Mark; no
John; yes, they look good to me, but are there new shells intended that use new domains?
Robert; sort of a separate question, but not exactly... In the SVN repository where everything is stored, there are extra shells for learning assessment (LA).
John; to me this looks right; we're basically excluding most domains, but including techcomm stuff plus org/xnal stuff, should just add rel mgmt.,
additional shells to allow new combinations that are now possible for L&T.
Kris; how many shells are in the new and old domains? For 1.3, we have to include both original and new, in case you need them; but now, there are 3 LA shells
LA - with everything old and new
LA1 - only uses old stuff and relies on deprecated stuff.
LA2 - only uses new elements
For LA1 and LA2, you may have to migrate the content, If we ship all three, we'd bloat the spec and confuse users very much.
[discussion - TC consensus was that we don't want extra la1/la2, just LA with everything, with recommendation that authoring tools will be able to display just 1 or 2.]

4. Continued item: Suggested TC position with regard to XSD usage
https://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/dita/201407/msg00003.html (Day, 8 July 2014)
https://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/dita/201407/msg00012.html (Kimber, 10 July 2014)
Don gave an overview on his mail from 8 July; it's time to make a statement that we're moving away from XSD towards RNC/RNG as normative _expression_ of DITA, and to give a warning wrt to users and vendors.
Kris; Eliot's piece is a good start, but it needs a serious edit.
Don; i'll take a look at it
Dick; I'd be willing to look at it also, but Don knows the material better;
Kris; maybe both of you could review it; it's good content, but needs editing to cut it about in half.
