the metadata...

In development branch of Digikam 
(branches/extragear/graphics/digikam/1.0-databaseext), Holger Foerster 
is working on a full database support for Digikam (Digikam currently 
only use sqlite, a small embedded database). This support may allow in 
the future to have a real framework for managing metadata  in Digikam 
from several computers.  But I guess it will take a lots of time before 
it appears in a stable release (I think it is also a feature which is 
missing in major software such as Lightroom).
