Subject: Re: [dita-lightweight-dita] Lightweight DITA: org.oasis.xdita

The public identifier changed to XDITA because readers were understanding LwDITA as XML only. 
He subcommittee has a more robust set of sample files in the GitHub repository and I plan to improve them as the TC and public review this draft of the note.

  • Why the shift from "-//OASIS//DTD LW DITA Topic//EN" to "-//OASIS//DTD XDITA Topic//EN"? In this context -- public identifiers for XML files -- there would be no confusion re other Lightweight DITA formats. I'd prefer "-//OASIS//DTD LIGHTWEIGHT DITA Topic//EN".
  • The plugin.xml file needs to be updated. I'm not sure who should be listed as the support person. The dita-comment list? dita-lightweight-dita-chair@lists.oasis-open.org?
  • For public consumption, I'd remove the docs directory -- unless we add something something there that is geared for public consumption, for example, directions on how to install the plugin and work with the sample files, or info about how the DTDs were coded.
  • I'd like to see a more robust set of sample files; currently there is a DITA map and two topics. One topic -- programming-bulbs.dita - is solid, while topic-test.dita was clearly only intended to be used while developing the DTDs. The map references the two topics and defines a key, although the key has no @href or variable text.
