Subject: Status of DITAweb for DITA TC use
Hi, Mark. (And DITA TC by cc line ...)
As I've mentioned in our Skype conversations, the DITA TC is
ready to start using DITAweb again as we ramp up our work on
Lightweight DITA and DITA 2.0.
Right now the major obstacles in our way are the following:
We could get around the syncing issue by uploading ZIPs of source to DITAweb, but one of the niceties that you added for us is a script to add @id attributes to elements; without the attributes added, reviewers cannot comment on specific parts of a topic, just the topic itself.
When do you think you might be able to get to this? The
Lightweight DITA subcommittee is ready now, and the DITA TC was
hoping to start a review next week. (And please help me redeem my
status as an effective chair; I've had this open as an action item
since 23 August 2016!)
I'm also cc'ing other folks at Mekon and Congility, since they
might be able to help out. We rely so heavily on using DITAweb; we
would never have been able to develop and release DITA 1.3 without
using it! It really is a very key application for us.
P. S. We'd also LOVE to see the latest version of DITAweb, which
I understand now has a flavor that is more optimized for review.
