[Digikam-users] Akonadi integration

Hello Digikam-Team / Users,

First of all: thank you so much for providing such a wonderful software! 
I love using it, even though I'm only just beginning to manage my fotos 
and I'm sure there's so much I just don't know yet.

One of the things I recently discovered is the tagging of fotos with 
Faces / Persons. Unfortunately (in my opinion), digikam does not seem to 
support / import the contacts from Akonadi / KAdressBook. I've done a 
google search and only came up with a mailing-list conversation, that 
didn't like Akonadi that much - however, the conversation is a few years 
old [1].

I'm on KDE SC 4.13 (opensuse 13.1, KDE Current repository enabled) now, 
and (at least for me) the KDE PIM suite and Akonadi work very well and I 
have a well organized Adressbook (synced with a Kolab-Server). I'm using 
digikam 4.0 and it seems the contacts are not imported / shared with 

Is there a plug-in / run-time switch / compile-time switch which I could 
download / enable to make this integration happening? Am I doing 
something wrong?

If not, is there hope that you will re-consider the current situation 
with regards to the Akonadi integration? I actually love the idea of the 
integrated / semantic / shared-data approach by KDE.

Best regards
