The properties broader, narrower and related (from the Relationship Group) should provide a list of conceptURIs in addition to the one expressed by the qcode attribute of these elements. For this purpose a sameAs child property should be added to these properties.
If a provider wants to annotate e.g. a province as subject of the news item and wants to add the superior country by a broader property it may be required to add the 2 *and* the 3 letter code for this country. Currently only one identifer can be applied, either 2 *or* 3 letter code. To overcome this limitation one to many sameAs properties could provide a list of equivalent identifiers for the same concept.
Modify the definition of the Information Source property to extend its semantics: while the current definition says "A party (person or organisation) which originate some information used to create or enhance the content" parties which modified, enhanced, distributed, aggregated or supplied the content should be included in future.
A party having the role of being a source of the content - in a wide sense - must have its place in the G2 metadata of item. One option was to add a property in parallel to infoSource. But as infoSource is already used for this purpose, with specific role vocabularies, - pushing the semantics to its limits - it is proposed to add this use to the definition. Having a new property and infoSource in parallel might also cause some confusion about where exactly to draw the line.
CR00142 Adding descriptive properties to a package group
Adding descriptive properties to a package group
Allow adding metadata which describe a group of a Package Item.
A Group within a Package Item is usually created for a specific purpose: a Group will wrap a group references to content in a specific context. This context may require a description or labelling. Further, a group may require special processing; this can be expressed by a signal property. Finally a note to the Editor of the receiver could be added as background information.
Add hascontent attribute to the children of contentSet
of a News Item
Add a flag to the child properties of contentSet of a NewsItem for indicating if the child property i/ already includes content, or ii/ is currently only an empty wrapper.
Not all planned renditions of the content of a News Item may be available at the time of the release of the initial version. However, at this time it might be known that, e.g., an HD rendition of the existing SD rendition of a video will follow soon. To make the receiver aware of the planned release of additional rendition(s), their elements may be added to a contentSet i/ with only metadata being defined, but ii/ with no actual content being provided (until a subsequent version of the item is released). This state must be indicated by using the added hascontent attribute.
