[GeoNode-devel] Non ISO Metadata Topic Categories and Geonode Behavior

Hi!! to all

I'm trying to implement multiple Topic Categories in Geonode, so that 
the metadata is more according to ISO 19115, as was discussed in this 
year code sprint.

But I have a doubt about  the correct  behavior in the upload of 
metadata that contains Topic Categories that doesn't  belong to ISO 

Currently, Geonode creates a new  category  :

                     elif key == 'topic_category':
                                 value, created =
                                     defaults={'description': '',
                'gn_description': value})
                                 key = 'category'
                                 defaults[key] = value

@ geonode/geonode/layers/utils.py (line 442)/****/

Is this the expected behavior?
If we have multiple categories imported from metatada files,  the number 
of new categories will raise a lot (including spelling errors), can this 
be bad ?

with best regards,
