SVN commit 946120 by cgilles:

just checked : next Exiv2 release 0.18.1 will be able to restaure metadata from RAW to DNG without to corrupt DNG file.
This include Exif _and_ Makernotes ! There is a huge work from exiv2 to maintain makernotes content valid, since it depand 
of other Exif tags. Note that Adobe DNG is _not_ able to do it. This are a lots of flame thread into Adobe forum about this 
subject to said taht Adobe DNG convert generate uncomplete DNG file (especially with Olumpus RAW files)
To resume : this is want mean than digiKam RAW converter is _better_ than Adobe converter !!!
