Hi all,

As Veaceslav said, Nepomuk have been implemented and will still optional.

As main code is already here, but have been broken due to API changes
from Nepomuk, this interface have been disabled.

The goal of Nepomuk job in this project is to re-activate this
interface, as Nepomuk recieve a copy of tags from digiKam DB.

In all case digiKam DB will never be moved to Nepomuk (:=)))...
