NOTE: This wiki is provided by the OASIS standards consortium as a collaborative tool for members of the OASIS DITA Technical Committee, who are permitted to post to these pages. As this is an official workspace of the TC, the OASIS IPR Policy and other OASIS rules apply to its use. To learn more about the work of the TC, send a comment, or join this effort, visit the OASIS DITA TC homepage.

Wiki pages are transient documents, so intermediate edits may not be saved. TC members should move all permanent work and stable artifacts to the TC's document repository, where the archival work product of the TC also can be viewed by the public.


The DITA TC Wiki serves the OASIS DITA TC for collaborative design work and for management of comment responses and other tracking documents.


See Agenda backlog for a back log of items for discussion at DITA TC meetings. The DITA TC leadership uses items from this list, as well as posts from the TC mailing list and the dita-comment list to construct the weekly agenda. The agenda is usually completed in the hour prior to the TC meeting.
