Hi Stanbol devs,

we are working on a semantic app. that will/should do content 
categorization and other stuff.

So I have some code that takes detected entities as input (in form of 
dbpedia urls) and looks up in dbpedia both YAGO categories and wikipedia 
categories (the ones that use to be skos:subject and now are dct:subject).

But of course this is tied to particular namespaces/service, I would 
like to expand it and abstract the particulars while retaining the 
functionality, something like a wrapper:

input: resource/resources/text (raw content)
output: categories/topics

Keep in mind I'm not looking for categories of the sort 
Person/Organisation... more of the sort Science/Jazz Musicians etc

So I've been following Stanbol's devs list for some time, and I'm exited 
about the possibilities, maybe I can use some of it for this particular 
requeriment. Right now, I see it as a collection of services, for 
example I can see zemanta doing what I want with DMOZ topics, included 
as an engine. (are there other engines doing similar?)

But I wonder, is there a "central" place with methods/services doing 
this for all implementations? or perhaps I misunderstood what the 
project is about...

kind of a getTopicsForResource(){

If not, what are good place to look for this kind of functionality so I 
can include it in my method?

Now I understand this in an incubating project so perhaps this is a 
planned feature, do you have any roadmap? Any expected date for a "first 
release" of stanbol?

Thanks and congratulations for an already impressing project! We'll be 
definetelly checking more of it out.
