Ah, yes, as you say one can select a local directory.

In fact I'm rather confused now - how would you export to a remote
location using this?

In 'Select Export Location' I'm only offered directories available on
the system where Digikam is running.  These *could* of course be
directories mounted from remote systems but Digikam won't know that
they're remote.

Also what is expected in the 'Target Location:' box?  Nothing is
offered to me there.

Is the idea that 'Target Location:' is the name of a remote system and
then you get to select directories on that remote system?  If so then
it would be handy to know the 'type' of remote system that's expected.
