2- Move <author> node (with ID, name and email attributes) to this new element (<authors>).
3- Add ID attribute for <author> element to refer to an author in <authors> element.
 
  • Currently <author> element can be occured between 0 and 1 times in schema.

June 22, 2006 - 1:06 PM GMT: Schema files has been updated for multi-author support

Let's call the authors node in the blog element "authors" as opposed to "author".  I see that an ID was added for authorType so it is now probably worth making the authorType inherit from nodeType like all other nodes that have ID's, we can just use the title attribute of the nodeType as the author's name.  Also, now that we have the super-set of authors listed in the blog element I think that we should add authors to posts in exactly the same way that categories are added to posts - ie: via an authorsRefType.  It's a bit more work but it would keep things consistent.

Ok, Darren would you please reupload original Schema file and remove my modified version? I lost original file.
I'll add new folder and will upload new Schema files there.
