Bug Description

Until recently I kept selecting the category "Import Tags" expecting the F-spot app to ask/allow me to import tags from some location/app.

The "Import tags" option sounds more like an action a user can perform rather than a collection of tags which are automatically added from the imported photos.

It would be better if this option is renamed as either "Imported Tags" or "External Tags" or something of the sort , so that the category sounds less like an action.

After discussing with the f-spot devs , they mention this is something they did find weird.
And they are open to suggestions to rename the option.

Maybe "Automatically added tags" is an option, although that would be a little on the long side...

How about "Imported Tags"?

This is not a phrase expressing an action; I suspect this is what the original author intended to put here anyway, but simply made a typo.
