OASIS DITA TC: RFP for dita.xml.org site (currently Drupal-based)


the OASIS DITA technical committees have published a RFP for their official website "to put more DITA in dita.xml.org". The site is currently powered by Drupal (6?).

"The Drupal implementation for dita.xml.org has been a long-standing source of pain, and we want to redo the site in early 2015," they write. Shouldn't that be a challenge for the Drupal community and/or some of the larger Drupal companies to prove them wrong?

A DITA documentation distribution for Drupal


A couple of weeks ago we launched Modulecraft an awareness & fund-raising project that aims to rally Drupal professionals around a shared effort to create the ultimate toolset for Drupal business. The first fundraising round has as goal the development of a documentation distribution for Drupal that uses a similar approach as the localization server and that enables a distributed/federated documentation architecture for the Drupal project. As a Drupal user you'll be able to get a set of documentation from the drupal.org docs server imported into your own site. You will than be able to edit it and build subsets of the documentation for your own projects. You'll also be able to submit topics that were edited or created by you on your own infrastructure and add them as suggestions to the Drupal documentation server.

The following is a first proposal for the specification of the Documentation system we want to build as part of the modulecraft project. It is by no means complete, and it strongly needs your feedback. This is our first encounter with DITA and our ideas should really be proof checked by technical writers that have extensive experience using DITA. It also contains some proposes a somewhat exotic usage of RDFa, feedback is also very much needed here. In the coming days I'll be adding new sections to the specification here. This is a wiki so be bold! You can add comments either here or at the original posts on the Pronovix blog. I'll be incorporating feedback into this wiki.

Better structured modules list page

Hi all,

Most of us is very enthusiastic about the user experience improvements for Drupal 7. The restructure and renaming is very welcomed and I am sure it will make it much easier for newbies to get started.

There is though one area that I still see as untouched, namely the Modules list page. After installing a number of modules it is quickly becoming a bit of a chaos list, especially since a lot of modules aren't using the "package" field in the [module].info file and thus their module end up in the Other category.

Getting Drupal 7 documented

I organized some Drupal 7 documentation sprints the last few Tuesdays (http://groups.drupal.org/node/50403)... They were successful, in that we got a couple of new people going in documentation, and a few patches filed (I'll shout out to trevjs especially, for coming to all of the sprints and patiently working on some patches).

However, the sprints were not very well attended, and we still have a lot to do to get the documentation of Drupal 7 ready for its release (http://drupal.org/node/515870), so I'm wondering how we can get it done.

My questions:
