Oxygen project for abstract encoding

Created a new Oxygen project for TEH, the incoming abstract encoder:

  • Created the project folder structure in tei2017/abstracts.
  • Created a project file, abstracts.xpr.
  • Adapted the JTEI ODD file so that it works for our project and contains explicit instructions on the workflow, svn, etc. Some additional schematron and tweaks to attribute values done.
  • Customized the JTEI document type to create a new type which looks to our schemas for validation.
  • Imported the transformation scenarios from JTEI (ODT and PDF).
  • Created a template for new documents.
  • Made my own submission into the first example, since it's already encoded.
  • Added all the original and revised submissions in the abstracts/originals folder.
  • Added transformation scenarios for the ODD file which put the RNG in the right place, and build the documentation, placing it in abstracts/documentation.

I think we're ready for the project to start, but I expect to be tweaking this as TEH gets started and finds under-documented or broken bits.

Second contact to SIGs; downtown rooms for Board and Council

I'm currently in discussions with the Parkside about possible venues for the Board and Council meetings. I've sent a follow-up message to SIG conveners who didn't respond to my first one, with a deadline of Aug 31, at which time if we don't hear from them we'll assume they're not meeting. Finally, we decided who to hire to do the abstract encoding, and she will come in on Friday.
