Subject: RE: [dita] Naming the big edition

I think it's safe at this point to conclude that we have consensus around "all-inclusive". So be it.


Thanks for all the interest!

My preference WAS "comprehensive", but having checked dictionary.com, I can go with "all-inclusive":

1. of large scope; covering or involving much; inclusive: a comprehensive study of world affairs.
2. comprehending or thoroughly understanding with one's mind; having an extensive mental range or grasp, as of a particular subject or many subjects.
3. Insurance. covering or providing broad protection against loss.

1. including everything; comprehensive.

I'm good with 1 and 2. I'll go with 'all-inclusive' for #3 in hopes of helping to tip things cleanly in a direction.

Hi everyone,


It is time to make a final decision regarding what to call the edition of DITA 1.3 that will contain everything. As a reminder, we are aiming to produce three "editions" that are proper subsets of each other:


1. Base -- map and topic

2. Technical Content -- Base plus all the tech comm stuff

3. ___?___ -- Technical Content plus Learning & Training


If you care about this naming issue, speak up now for your favourite among the following names that have been suggested and/or casually used to date (sans kitchen sink references because we're being all serious now):


- All-inclusive

- Complete

- Comprehensive

- Full

- Omnibus


(If there was another suggestion that I missed, please drop it into the mix.)


Failure to vote will be construed as implicit support for what Nancy and I have both agreed is our own favourite: "All-inclusive". I.e., if nobody says anything, we're going to go ahead and keep the one that we are already using as a placeholder in our draft docs!
