Subject: Re: [dita] Interesting news: GitHub, indexing the DITA spec and more

Well, let me just offer one caveat. All of this goes with "probably" right now. We are enthused and jazzed and are working on this because we think it is vitally important to OASIS's future. But it isn't a done deal. I'll certainly let you all know when it comes together. 

And meanwhile, if you all have any thoughts on either of these that you'd like to send to me, I will share them with the rest of the staff team. There are still a whole lot of specifics we have to put together to make it all work. 

I'm looking forward very much to helping you all put DITA into the TC Process pipeline next year and you've got all the support from me that I can offer.

I had a very good call with Chet Ensign, OASIS TC admin today. There are a couple of points that I wanted to share:
  • In (probably Q1) 2015, OASIS will start using GitHub.
  • At some point in 2015, OASIS will move to allowing TCs to be loosely affiliated with open source projects housed in the OASIS GitHub. These open source projects will be open to non-OASIS members. Because this might be an excellent location for Eliot's RNG-to-DTD-XSD generator, I've asked him to leave the source file in SVN until the TC has a chance to discuss this in the new year. This will also be a great location for the materials developed by the SIDSC.
  • We can index the DITA source files throughout the first OASIS review and right up to the time that we issue the OASIS Standard Candidate. Caveat -- A good index is TONS of work, and it's better to have no index than a lousy one, so this still might not work out.
