>1) Adopt XDG Folders spec for Photos as default value

I cannot see why we need to use this technical concept. it's too complicated
for end users. Nobody has already ask something like that before...

>2) Just ask "Where do you keep you Photos?"

It's already clear for me. you just plug your repository where your photos are
stored. that all. I cannot see any pb with current dialog informations...

>3) Don't ask anything about the db and drop it in the photos dir.

Certainly not !!!
digiKam use a local DB since a very long time. and it's work fine. we don't
want to break anything. especially to use Nepomuk !

>4) Wait for Nepomuk to understand XDG Folders ;)

No and no. Nepomuk support will be implemented as optional and will never
replace current solution using local DB...

For the moment Nepomuk is not the ultimate technology to include everywhere.
it's not mature for me, and it's already hard to include new KDE4 technologies
as Solid, Phonon etc without side effect or bad regressions.This is why Nepomuk
is not integrated in digiKam yet...

We want to have a suitable application which users can use as well, else it
will never work and we will never release something.

Nepomuk support is already in another B.K.O entry. No need to make
