Subject: DocBook TC Meeting Minutes 20 July 2016

DocBook Technical Committee Meeting Minutes: 20 July 2016

The DocBook Technical Committee met on Wednesday,
20 July 2016 at 2:00pm ET

1. Roll call

Present: Bob Stayton, Scott Hudson, Larry Rowland,
             and Dick Hamilton. Quorum met.

2. Accepted the minutes [1] of the previous meeting.

3. Next meeting: 17 August 2016

4. Review of the agenda.

Bob: add discussion about handling minutes.

5. Review of open action items

  a. Norm to review the non-normative XML Schema version of 5.1
      to make sure it has all the latest changes.

  b. Norm to complete his XInclude implementation.

  c. Bob to investigate assembly for XInclude equivalents.

  d. Larry will look into ISO standards for admonitions.
      COMPLETE: see discussion below

New Item: How to handle minutes.
      We will start using the OASIS process, which archives the minutes
      and sends them to the TC mailing list. Dick will cc the DocBook mailing list.

6.  Status of stagedir elements in Publisher's.  See [2].
     Email from Radu Coravu reported that <stagedir> and <inlinestagedir>
     are not in the publisher's schema as distributed with Oxygen. This led
     to a discussion of where the schema should live in its current state.
     These elements depend on 5.1, so they are not in the OASIS repository.

ACTION: Bob will discuss with Norm how Publisher's fits into the Github structure.
ACTION: Scott will verify that the items accepted for 1.1 are represented in a schema,
              make that schema available, and respond to the email.

7.  DocBook 5.1 release
     Bob spoke with Chet Ensign to see what needs to happen to make 5.1
     a Candidate OASIS Standard. The changes are all formatting and do not
     require changes to the standard. Norm set up a custom process to build
     the deliverables. Bob converted the files and process back to the method
     OASIS uses and is now using the OASIS standard tools. He created a version
     of the Candidate OASIS Standard using those tools and sent it to Chet on
     Monday. Once Chet has approved the format, it will be sent to the OASIS
     membership for a vote.

8. Admonitions
    Larry Rowland reviewed standards for admonitions. He suggests adding <danger>.
    The TC agree to add <danger> as a new admonition.
    The TC also discussed whether there should be an attribute that can be used to
    specify a particular standard for admonitions (e.g., ANSI or ISO). The TC decided
    that this should be strictly a stylesheet question and not part of the standard.
    Scott asked, what about safety instructions? This is an ANSI spec, but not ISO
    (at the moment; the two standards are being unified, which might cause this to
    be added to the unified spec).
    TC discussed whether to add a general <admonition> element to cover cases
    such as safety instructions. This element would be the same as the others,
    except <title> would be required. This question was left open, in part because
    There is an open question as to whether the class attribute, which this element
    might use, is always enumerated or could be left open.
