Community Support Forums

DITA Open Toolkit is developed and maintained by a small group of volunteers who work on the project in their spare time.

With these limited resources, we can’t offer direct support, but the DITA community offers several other forums, including:

  • The DITA Users group was founded in 2004 as a Yahoo! Group and moved to in November 2019. The mailing list addresses the needs of DITA users at all levels of experience, from beginners to experts, and serves as a vital resource for the DITA community.
  • The DITA-OT Discussions forum on GitHub is a collaborative communication platform that allows members of the community to ask questions, share suggestions, upvote discussions to signal support, and mark questions as anwered.
  • The DITA-OT Users group is a general interest DITA-OT mailing list for questions on any aspect of the toolkit — from installation and getting started to specific overrides, plug-ins, and customizations.
  • The Stack Overflow developer community includes topics related to DITA-OT.
  • The OASIS DITA Technical Committee maintains the DITA standard.
