Comment 11 for bug 585169


It's a real bummer that the pyexiv2 0.2 (and later) api is so different from 0.13. I think I can write a new module pyexiv_forphatch to interface with Phatch. I'll fix pyexiv_forphatch to use either the 0.13 or 0.2+.

I'll have to discuss this with Stani.

Subject: [Bug 585169] Re: phatch does not work with pyexiv2 0.2

Note that my main goal is to port the existing code base to pyexiv2 0.3, and make sure this doesn’t introduce regressions in the existing functionality. Adding new functionality (e.g. activate XMP support) is out-of-scope at the moment, as it would require lots of testing. However switching to pyexiv2 0.3 will naturally make adding XMP support quite easy to write.
