Subject: Proposal to the OASIS DITA TC to form a "DITA for the Web" Sub-Committee From: firstname.lastname@example.org To: email@example.com Date: Tue, 20 Oct 2009 09:04:03 -0400
Dear OASIS DITA TC members,
For the past several months, Mark Lewis (Quark) and John Hunt (IBM) have been exploring interest and gathering interested parties on the topic of "DITA for the Web."
We'd like to update the TC on the status of these activities, and bring forward a proposal to form a "DITA for the Web" sub-committee. The draft charter below outlines the initial goals and deliverables for this effort.
We have held three "forming" meetings in August and September that have drawn considerable interest, including attracting several new OASIS memberships and several more potential OASIS memberships if the sub-committee activity goes forward. Attendance at these meetings has been from six to twelve people, including nine current OASIS members. An additional ten individuals have expressed interest in participating in future meetings.
John Hunt and Mark Lewis
