OASIS Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) Technical Committee
Statement of Purpose:
DITA is an XML-based standard for modular and extensible topic-based information. It enables content creators to separate content into semantically rich, reusable components that reflect the core purpose of the content they contain. DITA provides a model for defining and processing new components as specializations of existing ones, thus enabling interoperability of DITA-based content.
Scope of work:
The scope of the DITA TC encompasses the following:
- Defining and maintaining DITA standards
- Promoting the use of DITA standards
The DITA TC does not produce reference implementations or rate conformance of DITA products.
The DITA TC produces the following deliverables and more:
- DITA specifications and associated grammar files
- Committee notes that contain non-normative content (tutorials, best practices, migration information, etc.)
- Webinar and conference presentations
In addition, the DITA TC sponsors several Open OASIS GitHub repositories through which non-OASIS members can participate in DITA-related work.
