Hi Veaceslav,

Bug 268688 https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=268688 that is mentioned 
in the thread that Elle linked to contains a number of conflicting 
wishes. The part of your proposal that seems to address any of those 
wishes is where you offer to 'Write tags from database to image' and 
remove obsolete tags. I see this as a heavy handed maintenance operation 
that will not really fix the underlying issue.
The way I would like the bug I would like to see resolved (that got 
merged into 268688) is when a change is made to the tags hierarchy (ie 
move or delete a tag) that will render images with applied metadata out 
of sync, to be offered 3 options or to have one of them selected in 
1) apply change only to database
2) add change to a queue to be actioned later when it will update 
affected images
3) apply change immediately to database and all affected images.
Also please note that I am talking about applying a 'change' - this is 
not the same as syncing the database to the image metadata.

Also I would like to see https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=309598 
resolved. And there should be a bug or wishlist somewhere about copying 
tags from one image to others.

Good luck and all the best,
