Hi Alex,
I've been playing with openCV for a few months now. I'm quite familiar with Qt
too. I'd like to help and get involved with digikam. I'd like to work on the
face recognition thingy. I'm still new to bugzilla and svn, but I'll learn soon

[1] My opinion is that the haar cascades bundled with openCV seem quite good,
and using multiple types of cascades for different poses might be a good idea.
I think one can call the face detector function with very permissive arguments
so that almost all faces and some nonfaces are detected, and then apply some of
one's own tricks to discard the nonfaces.

[2] Another thing I'd like to mention is - a guy named Rohan Anil has made a
PAM face authentication module in the previous two GSOC's for KDE. I've checked
his app and the detection part is quite good. In fact, close to perfect. 

The catch is that Rohan's app is supposed to detect only ONE face in an image.
I think that the previous thing I mentioned in [1] can be used to grab anything
that looks remotely like a face and feed it to [2].

His face recognition is something I haven't tested much, but I think it would
be, well, *security-level* stuff.

The PAM Module's link is here :
