[pmwiki-devel] New Recipe Advice Required

I have created a weather forecast recipe. This uses a Python script to 
query Yahoo's server and get an xml page containing weather information. 
The script then creates a wiki page, which just contains PTV's of the 
data, so you have complete control over what our forecast page looks like.

Before I create a new page on PmWiki I have a few questions:

What's the best category to place the recipe in?

Looking at http://developer.yahoo.com/weather/ I think it should be OK 
to use this recipe for personal use, but I wouldn't want Pm to get into 
trouble with Yahoo, so I won't create the page until Pm gives me the go 

The developer link above gives feeds which only have forecasts for 
48hrs. However, a bit of digging reveals an undocumented feed with 5 
days data. If I upload the recipe, I'll only include information for the 
48hr feed.
