PaceCategoryElement


Abstract

Add an atom:category element to both atom:head and atom:entry. It can appear multiple times. It is straightforwardly modeled on the RSS2 category element.

Status

Withdrawn in favor of PaceCategoryRevised

Rationale

Looking at RSS2, the only element which it provides that is actually widely used but doesn't yet appear in the Atom feed format is "category".

Proposal

Add new sections 3.7, 4.2.13, and 5.13 to the atompub-format-03 draft.

==== 3.7  The Category Construct ==== 

        The atom:category element contains information about a category to which an
        Atom feed or entry is associated.  It has one attribute, "domain", which is
        a URI that identifies a categorization scheme.  Its textual content should
        be a multi-part string, with the parts separated by slash ("/") characters,
        identifying a taxonomic category.
==== 4.2.13 The "atom:category" element ==== 

        A Category Construct identifying a category to which the feed is associated.
        atom:head elements MAY contain any number of atom:category elements.
==== 5.13 The "atom:category" element ==== 

        A Category Construct identifying a category to which the entry is
        associated.  atom:entry elements MAY contain any number of atom:category
        elements.
