In digiKam, one can select target image, go to Image / Metadata / Import
Exif and select the source image in the file listing dialog. Then do the
same for XMP or IPTC... Target metadata are overwritten. Good for one
image, but not for an every day work.

My target is simple "copy all metadata" and "paste metadata", preferably
via keyboard short-cut. I do not know how to do achieve this in digikam,
hence I plan to do so via Nautilus scripts.
