Subject: Notes from the dita.xml.org call on 27 August

dita.xml.org call

Call on Wednesday, 27 August 2014 with Kris Eberlein, JoAnn Hackos, Don Day, and Michael Priestley.

Goals of site

  • Community site: Provide information about DITA for both novices and experts
  • Event listings
  • Resources: Folks mentioned the following as currently useful: Lightweight DITA info; Kris's slides and handout for DITA 1.3 and short descriptions; Robert's DITA-OT information; articles from individuals
  • Strong TC presence

Functional requirements

  • Be able to ingest DITA content (Examples: Spec, Adoption TC white papers)
  • Ability for individuals to post content (articles, resources, whatever). Content should be able to be viewed by date submitted.
  • Ability for admins to communicate with registered users in some way: RSS feed? E-mail to registered users?
  • Search and taxonomy
  • Strong spam control: Ability to approve users based on their first post? Current approach for dita-users list (over 3K users) which works
  • Site should be "skinable"
  • Ease of use for administrators and participants -- It needs to NOT be excruciatingly painful for people to contribute or administrate -- Must suck less than Drupal or Yahoo!
  • Ability to have multiple moderators/administrators

Implementation concerns

  • How to migrate content from existing site: Export from Drupal and import via transforms?
