[Digikam-users] moving from Shotwell to Digikam

I installed Digikam and loaded a few test images.
- Shotwell presents one thumbnail for a raw/jpeg pair, identified
and managed as a pair. Digikam just shows 2 thumbs for the 2 files.
- Digikam will read tags on plain jpegs tagged by Shotwell
- Digikam does not read tags from pairs tagged by Shotwell (Shotwell bug)
So, I'm currently stuck, since most all my Shotwell tags are on pairs.
I would think the best way to do the import would be via some sql which
transferred data from the Shotwell sqlite db to the Digikam db, but evidently
this hasn't been done ... ?
