DITA 1.2 Specification Review Assignments

Last updated: 12:50 PM ET, 16 September 2008

Specification Document, DTD and Schema Reviews

We need to review the written DITA 1.2 specification documents as well as the DTDs and XDSs. The lists below cover the written specification documents. A separate list of doctype shells to be included in DITA 1.2 is available.

Beyond reviews the DITA TC has said that it wants to have at least two users of each feature if the feature is to be included in the approved committee draft.

Volunteer Reviewers and Users Needed

If you are able to volunteer to be a reviewer or a user of one or more sections of the specification, please add your name to the appropriate cell or cells in the tables below. Ideally we are looking for at least two reviewers and two users for each section. More than two would be fine. Reviewers and users can, but don't need to be, the same person.

Review Comments

Reviewers should send their questions and comments:

Comments may be in whatever form is most convenient for the reviewer (e-mail text, e-mail attachments, revised DITA source, ...). Please be sure to indicate what version of the specifications, DTDs, or XSDs the reviews or comments are based on.

Schedule

Draft Language Reference Specification

The language reference sections of the specifications are available for review in .zip archives in several forms:

You'll want to look at the versions that are organized by element type (ditaref-type.chm or langspectocjs/type).

Some of the language reference items contain Draft Comments asking questions about matters that still need to be resolved.

DITA 1.2 Specification Documents

Note: Eliot Kimber has volunteered to review all of the DITA 1.2 specification documents.
