Hi Israel: thanks for the info. This should work. Notes:
- in the default CSW schema representation, keywords are represented by
1..n dc:subject elements. You can access this in OWSLib via:
- Categories need to be set in the UI or provided via ISO metadata (which
supports a TopicCategory element), and are then available via querying the
CSW for an ISO schema representation, i.e.:
Having said this, there is currently no way to express the Category in
the default CSW schema provided by pycsw. I've filed a pycsw issue 
to fix this for cases where the core CSW schema is the preferred option.
Hope this helps.
