[Digikam-users] about "synchronizing XMP sidecars and the digiKam database"

Hmm, if I understand you, what you say makes sense.

The digiKam/exiv2 changes I had in mind were changes in how the actual
strings are written, and where they are written to. At present (or at
least last I checked, as noted in the article you mentioned) digiKam
writes some of the strings ("title", for example) to technically
incorrect places. So I've been using exiftool to pull these items from
the digikam sidecar and put them in the technically correct place in
the exiftool sidecar. And digiKam automatically writes a whole bunch
of stuff (also noted in the article) that I don't want at all, so I
don't transfer any of that stuff to the exiftool sidecar.

A configurable script (write this here, don't write that anywhere)
would be nice to have. I do get tired of changing those "write/don't
write" digiKam options.
