Subject: RE: Do we have to have the schemas embedded in the specification?
Thanks for the explanation.
Good luck with your civic duty.
Forgive the brevity. I am on jury duty today and currently working on my cellphone.
The schema need not be incorporated into the narrative spec document. If it is, the practice is to put it in an appendix and include some notice or reference to the external copy. If you put it in the spec, you must include it as an external file as well. Also, in case of discrepancy, the external copy is authoritative.
A copy of the schema must be included with the spec and approved by the TC in order to be lart of the spec. In other words, you can't store the schema somewhere other than docs.oasis... and have it be official.
It is fine to just package the schema with the spec doc and submit it it to tcadmin. We will list it on the cover page. I can give you the url for it ahead of time if you need it.

Subject: Do we have to have the schemas embedded in the specification?
Wondering if you could advise us on this?
Can you advise us what the best practice is in your experience. Does OASIS have a preference? Are you aware of other TCs who remove schemas from their specification?
On Behalf Of Dr. David Filip
I think this is a question for the broader community
Implementers on the TC but also people like Spartans, Phil Ritchie, SDL, Multicorpora etc.
As editor I would be happy to get rid of this potential source of inconsistency.
However as you say the current listing are generated.
And I have to manage stage specific links anyways, so this does not save much in editing effort and IF people are using them for reading convenience, as intended, we should probably keep them...
No strong opinion here, happy to remove the listings if we hear from users that they are not using them..
