It is now way too late to introduce a new mapping table in the REC document.
AC reps have voted on the PR document and we are not allowed to 
introduce more stuff into the specification apart from small editorial 
bugs fix.

I propose that we leave the spec as is. I will remove the creator entry 
in the YouTube mapping.
creator 	exact 	/atom:entry/atom:author/@uri 	creator:@url

We can add a new mapping table with ATOM format in the appropriate 
document linked from the REC document.


Thierry.

>> Dear all,
>>
>> while implementing a YouTube-Media Ontology mapper, I encountered the following additional problems:
>>
>> 1. ATOM Protocol
>>
>> YouTube nowadays uses the ATOM protocol as default, not RSS (still available as secondary protocol though)
>>
>>
>> 2. Keywords (ma-ont:keyword)
>>
>> XPath: /atom:entry/media:group/media:keywords
>>
>> YouTube will return a single value with a comma-separated list of keywords; in Media Ontology, this should be split into at least the individual keywords.
>>
>> An alternative offered by the YouTube Atom API would be /atom:entry/atom:category[@scheme='http://gdata.youtube.com/schemas/2007/keywords.cat']/@term
>>
>> 3. Category (ma-ont:genre)
>>
>> XPath: /atom:entry/media:group/media:category
>>
>> YouTube returns the category as a string, but the reference defines that this string should be mapped to the YouTube Schema URI, i.e.
>>
>> if /atom:entry/media:group/media:category = Music, then the mapping should be to http://gdata.youtube.com/schemas/2007#Music;
>>
>> reference: http://code.google.com/intl/de-DE/apis/youtube/2.0/reference.html#youtube_data_api_tag_category
>>
>>
>> 4. Copyright (ma-ont:copyright)
>>
>> XPath: /atom:entry/media:group/media:license
>>
>> the YouTube API returns copyright information as media:license element. This could be mapped to the ma-ont:copyright property with a bit of transformation, because YouTube only offers two values, "cc" for creative commons and "youtube" for their own license.
