Subject: [dita] Important sections to review on the LwDITA committee note
Date: Wed, 27 Sep 2017 09:54:15 -0400
From: Carlos Evia <cevia@vt.edu>
To: DITA Technical Committee <dita@lists.oasis-open.org>

Dear TC members,

Kris and I had an action item to identify key sections of the LwDITA committee note that need special attention. This is that we propose:

Important issues *everyone* should look at:
- Last paragraph in section 3: "What is Lightweight DITA?"
- Section 4.6: "LwDITA specialization"
- Do we need a new topic about "LwDITA authoring formats and interoperability" (expanding content from the note in Appendix A.1)?

And then, it would be great if you can look at the following:
- Terminology for the intended audience(s). Are we covering all the terms? What else do we need to define?
- List of elements and tables (note: section 4.1 is NOT about XML elements but about LwDITA elements)
- New multimedia elements: alignment with proposed 1.3 domain 
- Tools section. Do we need to mention anything about MDITA and HDITA tools? 
- Tables of elements and attributes.
