Morning all

As I see it this thread is not yet closed or done. Facts seem to be that:
- digiKam is one of KDE's most prominent and best applications
- on the other side: some Linux distros have problems to flawlessly package it

Thus I'd propose to organize an IRC meeting where people of these Linux 
distros and digiKam people could meet and constructively discuss the difficult 
items and find solutions to clear this once and for all.

I'd offer to organize this IRC meeting and moderate the discussion.

What do you think? Gilles, Pino, Raymond, Kevin?

So tagging of release branches/releases seems to be one item to discuss at 
this meeting.
