Gilles, how should I update from repository ?


Should I only run ./download-repos again (after uninstalling my local
version of digikam) ?

Or should I uninstall all and the download repository again ?


Have you some case to test. 

I have a test collection with a lot of pictures (that I had clean with
exiv2) and tagged with digikam since old digikam versions (2004), tags
are not write to file since two years and cleaned with exiv2 due to
those "tags" jam. I will try to launch some tests next week.
