Further Description of this Repository
Early commits for this repository begin with the source for all parts of DITA Version 1.3: http://docs.oasis-open.org/dita/dita/v1.3/os/part0-overview/dita-v1.3-os-part0-overview.html
Version 1.3 source is updated with 1.3 Errata 01; both of these versions were orginally maintained in SVN: http://docs.oasis-open.org/dita/dita/v1.3/errata01/os/complete/part0-overview/dita-v1.3-errata01-os-part0-overview-complete.html
From this point, GitHub is used for work on both DITA 2.0 and any other DITA 1.3 Errata.
