Darktable by default will not reread xmp sidecar files. So if you change
something in digikam (ratings, tags) darktable will not show it. I am
not sure if darktable will overwrite all changes. I asked on the
darktable developer list if this will change in near future and I was
told that this (using darktable with digikam or simmilar) is not a
workflow any of the developer is using an with this has a very low priority.

What is the way digikam handles changes in sidecar files from outside?
