1.  I don't agree that the exhibited behavior is correct.  See attachment,
which describes my attempt to create a template step-by-step for my
reasoning.  Perhaps I am missing something.

2.  I downloaded v. 6.2 but I have not yet installed it.  When I started
the installation a message was displayed that read, in part:

"Important:  database schemas can be upgraded between major releases, so
it's recommended to backup all database files . . . ."

I am not sure where those database files are located.

I found this:  Program Files/digiKam/digikam/database/dbconfig.xml.

Is that the actual database file that I need to backup?  If not, where is
the database file located?

In that same folder is also mysql-global.conf.

Does that also need to be backed up?
