Hi Mikael,

thx for you work on fi digikam* translations!
I'm not a developer and currently a bit short of
time.  So send to digikam-devel ML to answer the
stuff I've no glue about.

Please keep Mikael on the recipient list.

My hope was to build 0.8.2 (stable) tarball next Monday (10 July)
and 0.9-beta1 (trunk) 17 July.  Do you think you're able to merge
stable until 10th?

No, digikam imageplugins are only used by digikam and showfoto (both in digikam svn/tarball)

  To me vi is Zen.  To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
  a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
  You discover truth everytime you use it.
