Subject: Approval of DITA v1.0 as OASIS Standard

OASIS members:

     The ballot for approval of DITA v1.0 as an OASIS Standard, announced at [1], was completed with sufficient affirmative votes to
approve the specification. However, because there were negative votes, the Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) Technical
Committee was required to decide how to proceed, per the OASIS TC Process (at [2]).  The TC gave consideration to the negative votes
but has voted to request the specification be approved. (See [3].)

     We are pleased, therefore, to announce that Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) v1.0 has been approved as an OASIS
Standard. The submission of the approved standard can be found at [4].

     Congratulations to the TC, and the community of implementers, 
developers and users who have brought the work successfully to culmination.
