Strawman here for discussion.
1. Divide up the spec by functional lines:
- Dates and Times
- Numbers & Currencies
- Other supplemental data
- Supplemental metadata
- Many authors
- Cheap tools, accessible to everyone
- Easy to edit.
- Must be able to snapshot.
- Stylesheets (or equivalent mechanisms) are critical.
1. Use HTML, but break into Part1, Part2, .... Still have to muck with tagging; non-WYSIWYG editing.
3. Ask Richard Ishida about how W3C documents work. [Mark]
4. Use Sites for the subdocuments. We've done this in ICU, and it makes it easier to edit, and thus easier to add new material.
The release would consist of taking a snapshot of the site, copying to different number (eg ldmlspec2.1)
4.1. There is a rough prototype:
- Mark to look at whether we can make a copy for a snapshot of a version. DONE (easy to do)
- any of us can edit easily
- Numbering couldn't be within chapter (eg Chapter 2 section 1 would be 1.)
- Could only approximate the TR format.
- CSS doesn't yet work.
