Hi, all. Did you know that the Arbortext change tracking namespace declaration in DITA topics breaks the build in the DITA Open Toolkit? Here’s the issue:
Even after all changes in a file are accepted or rejected, Arbortext leaves a change tracking namespace declaration and an <info> element in the file, like so:
<task id="InsertingAVaribleList-CC4AB62F" xml:lang="en" xmlns:atict="http://www.arbortext.com/namespace/atict">
tracking="off" ref="0" print="" color=""/><atict:user user="mcevallo"
fullname="mcevallo" color="#8000FF"/><atict:user user="sfogel"
fullname="Steve Fogel" color="#D06000"/>
The DITA OT complains about the xmlns:atict attribute of the task element and excludes the file from the build.
We at Oracle view this as a bug and suggest that all this code be removed after the last change is accepted or rejected. We’re perfectly happy to accept that the DITA OT build might break if there is actual change tracking markup in the body of the file. But once all that markup is gone, so should be the above code.
