Thank you, Dan, for giving some background on Tite.
The main issue is that Council doesn't know what's going on with Tite.
I have been harping about this for years, in emails to Council, to Dan
and sometimes also to Perry, and occasionally in public at our annual
Tite has been mentioned offhand on TEI-L for years with very little
information about what it is, where it came from, and where it's going.
(I pulled together what information I could gather on my own in an
email to TEI-L in December 2008, when the SIG on Libraries solicited
feedback on the schema.)
In Council in 2010, we have at various times expected to discuss Tite,
but word hasn't always made it around to the whole Council that plans
have changed in some way or another from what we last heard. This could
be because people are cc'd on a message from a non-Council member
addressed to tei-council or simply because we all get a lot of email and
forget who has seen what.
This aside, I generally agree with Dan's sentiment that the TEI-C's
relationship with Apex is a new thing that in part needs to be figured
out as we go along.
Like Sebastian, I do wish Apex hadn't used the version label "1.1" on
what they're using since it implies there is no fork. But this is not
irreversible. I doubt anyone is using Apex's document for any
subsequent work, so they can rename the PDF (and remove the
"confidential and proprietary" notice) on their website.
