How are review comments and feedback managed within DITA for telecom content?

Managing review comments and feedback within DITA for telecom content is essential for ensuring the accuracy and quality of documentation. DITA provides mechanisms for handling review comments and incorporating feedback into the content development process.

Review Comments Integration

DITA allows reviewers to provide comments and feedback directly within the XML content. Reviewers can use designated elements or attributes to insert their comments alongside the relevant content. For example, the <note> element or a custom attribute like “review-comment” can be used to annotate sections requiring attention. This makes it clear which parts of the content have received feedback and what the comments entail.


Here’s an example of how DITA enables the integration of review comments:

<topic id="telecom_setup">
  <title>Telecom Setup</title>
    <p>This section describes the telecom setup process.

<p>This is the initial configuration step.<note>Reviewer: Please clarify the required settings here.</note>

<p>This is another important configuration step.<note review-comment="Reviewer: Confirm if this step is still valid.">Please ensure the accuracy of the details provided.</note>

</body> </topic>

In this example, the DITA topic “Telecom Setup” includes review comments using the <note> element and a custom “review-comment” attribute. Reviewers’ feedback is directly integrated into the content.
