Subject: RE: [docstandards-interop-tech] RE: [odf-adoption] Please review the Docstandards InterOp Scenerio and possible venues

Here is an update to the scenario that simplifies it based on my
comments in the meeting today.  All I did was to remove the second
import of a DITA fragment and the reference to it in the last item.

The only other comment I have, which I'll toss out for discussion,
is that this tends to reinforce common (mis)perceptions about DITA
and DocBook (e.g., modules vs. books).  We might want to consider
working against those perceptions to show the flexibility of each
of the standards.  For example, we might generate the email software
docs from DITA and the website from DocBook.  Just a thought for your

- govt worker begins drafting a policy note in ODF about the use of
personal data received via email 
- govt worker pulls in the text of the relevant statute, which is in a
DITA specialization 
- govt worker pulls in the instructions on how to include the text of
the disclaimer in emails, from documentation of the email software
written in DocBook 

- technical author 1, using DITA, creates an internal policy and
procedures website 
- and pulls in text from the DocBook email software documentation 
- and pulls in the legal text from a DITA specialization 
- and pulls in the relevant section of the policy note, written in ODF 

- technical author 2, using DocBook, creates a customized version of the
email software documentation 
- and pulls in portions of the procedures web site, in the form of DITA
topics and ODF policy notes 

- as the policy changes, or the email software changes, or the statute
itself changes, all the references can be updated simply by
rebuilding/republishing the content, since all reuse is by reference not
by copy-and-paste
