DITA Adoption TC
The DITA Adoption TC and the DITA TC are separate OASIS technical committees. They focus on different aspects of DITA, although their work is complementary and is coordinated at a high level through overlapping membership. The DITA Adoption TC is focused on educational and outreach activities to increase the awareness and usefulness of DITA. The DITA TC is focused on developing the DITA specification as an OASIS Standard.
