#349 <moduleSpec>/@type only partially defined


Ticket arising out of discussion on Council list:


moduleSpec/@type has only been partially defined. the valDesc
suggests it should be a closed valList, but there is no valList. It
looks as though work on this was interrupted half-way through.

I'm not sure. Although the TEI may have need for a closed set of
values here, remember that ODD can be used entirely separate from
the TEI. Is there a consistent set of moduleSpec type
categorisations which don't limit other uses of it? As far as I
can tell the TEI itself, in the production of the Guidelines or
our exemplar ODDs, do not use @type on moduleSpec.

...we have one instance of moduleSpec/@type, viz

<moduleSpec xml:id="DSTTEI2" ident="tei" type="core">

I suggest removing the valDesc and simply make moduleSpec a member of att. typed.
I agree that it looks like unfinished work, and in its present state is confusing

    I agree. Add it to att.typed.

    <moduleSpec> added to att.typed in rev 10104. Setting Resolution to Fixed, but leaving the ticket open in case this causes something to break and we have to roll back. If all is well, ticket can be closed in due course.
