Going off this discussion on the Zotero forums
The emerging consensus seems to be to map director for films (and
probably related items) to CSLs director only and not, as we currently
do in Zotero and Mendeley (at least) to author.
The main implication would be that we’ll start switching styles to add
substitute elements with cs:director in them and that we’d potentially
test for the presence of that variable.
Are there any concerns about this? I don’t see much that can
happen–if you keep the mapping to author, styles will pretty much
continue as they did before–but I may be overlooking something. If
so, let us know.
We may consider similar adjustments to dealing with primary creator
types in the future, so if there are any general concerns, let us
Thank you and best,
