Subject: Re: [dita] Follow-up on requests to the Lightweight DITA subcommittee

Don't forget the article Michael P and I published on the STC journal:

Happy to add the committee note to my November projects. I will work with Michael and Keith S-R.

At yesterday's subcommittee meeting, I suggested that the subcommittee author a committee note about Lightweight DITA. I think such a committee note could include the following:

  • Rationale for Lightweight DITA
  • Content model for Lightweight DITA
    • Element set
    • New elements added
    • New attributes added
  • Specialization model
  • Supported or sponsored tooling

I think such a committee note would be critical for the following reasons:.

  • So far there is NO material published by the DITA TC. The only materials published on Lightweight DITA are blog pieces, Webinars, and conference presentations by SC members.
  • It would ensure that what is being proposed by the subcommittee is clearly understood and supported by the main TC.

I also suggested that it was time for the subcommittee to develop a strawman schedule of what they plan to develop and deliver in the next year.
