I've recently joined the DITA mailing list. The number of DITA workshops seems quite significant. We have the expertise on this list. 1. Has it been done at all? I know ndw has done 'overviews' and such like, but I don't recall any Docbook workshops, Eu or US. 2. Has anyone presented such a workshop *and* prepared to donate the material to Docbook? Karens goal seems quite modest. > The goals would be that participants would walk away from the workshop > more familiar and comfortable with Docbook, and with a nice sample > template in hand for ..... [Customizing Docbook output?] [Modifying the Docbook Schema] >those interested in making contributions.
