[Digikam-users] Put Digikam in read-only mode

Dear all,

ultimately, I would like to be able to put Digikam in a read-only mode, such 
that it is guaranteed, that my original files remain untouched. To single 
exception would be deleting files.

I assume that raws (and jpgs, if no raws are taken in the first place) are 
only touched to write metadata to them, if configured so. I have configured to 
metadata to be read and written to XML sidecar only. Does this setting lead to 
untouched originals already?

From a more general point of view, I would like to know if Digikam opens files 
r/w per se, or are files opened r/o and r/w is only used for operation which 
need these permission.
