Overview

While DITA was originally designed as an architecture for technical documentation, it has grown into a solution for much more than that. Today, DITA supports a growing set of industries and vertical markets via subcommittees that are responsible for their specializations. As a result, the technical communication specializations, including bookmap and the concept, reference, task, and glossary topic types, have been moved out of the base DITA package into a new "tech comm" package. The purpose of the Technical Communication Subcommittee is to take ownership of the "tech comm" specializations, driving new developments for technical communication and providing ongoing maintenance of the existing specializations.
