|Subject:||Groups - DITA 1.1 #9 (2): element for properties and embedded data (Issue9.html) modified|
|Date:||Sep 6, 2005 11:24:13 am|
This proposal was approved at the 8/30/05 meeting:
- #9 Add a element for representing machine-processable values within DITA topics and maps http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/dita/download.php/14073/Issue9.html
Erik -- This should be designed more fully before the committee can vote on it.
- is the committee willing to approve completing the design?
- what holes does the committee see in the design?
Erik requests feedback to email list.
Bruce Esrig -- Any relationships with other issues? e.g. Need to record structured info for other purposes?
Don -- Does this effect design, or just that context of data element meets those requirements.
Bruce -- e.g. conditionalizatoin attrs. Then possible to design special structures used for conditionalization. Do we want to design the data structure to do conditionalization?
Paul Prescod -- How would a user use the intersection of those two things?
Bruce -- Put value in conditional parameter. Assumed to be a global unique value. If the person wants to draw those names from a (product hierarchy), they may need to come up with some structures. Those structures may be similar to those in the data element.
PP -- Might this be system-wide metadata?
Bruce -- Problem comes if lower-level names are not unique. e.g. switch and 17 product names have switch.
Erik -- Existing prodinfo element is example of that.
Bruce -- This may not specifically apply under the data proposal. Perhaps it should proceed around the profiling proposal.
Don -- Does this inform on the design of the data element, or is it a best proactice?
Bruce -- Could inform design if requires nesting (?)
Don -- In general, I think we want to keep the feature of cond processing separate from the design points of the elements in dita. Bruce, please correspond w/ Erik re: use cases on email list (plus any other feedback on design). A complex, real-world example would be nice to have in the spec.
PP -- Bruce -- can you send email to list highlighting these issues?
Approved for 1.1
