Bug Description

Binary package hint: f-spot

For some odd reason I haven't entirely determined, f-spot release tarballs don't include all their extensions. For instance, while http://f-spot.org/Extensions, Changelog and the git tree lists quite a few tools:

 http://git.gnome.org/browse/f-spot/tree/extensions/Tools
 ChangePhotoPath
 DevelopInUFraw
 HashJob
 LiveWebGallery
 MergeDb
 MetaPixel
 PictureTile
 RawPlusJpeg
 RetroactiveRoll
 ScreensaverConfig
 SyncCatalog

The actual 0.6.1.5 and 0.7.0 tarballs only contain these:

  ChangePhotoPath
  DevelopInUFraw
  HashJob
  LiveWebGallery
  MergeDb
  RawPlusJpeg
  RetroactiveRoll
  ScreensaverConfig

This means

  MetaPixel
  PictureTile
  SyncCatalog

are missing.

Perhaps because of this, the Ubuntu build is lacking a few key extensions. One of these is SyncCatalog, which has been noticed as being missing by other users in https://answers.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/f-spot/+question/111589

I've managed to download a tip build of f-spot and modified SyncCatalog slightly to get it to build for 0.6.1.5; I'll attach a tarball shortly and perhaps that's the right way forward (packaging them separately, and including them in the repository). Or perhaps the right way forward is to investigate upstream why the tarball is missing these extensions. Has it been that just nobody noticed?

I've verified this bug exists in Lucid's current 0.6.1.5 and Maverick's current 0.7.0.

Untar this and then just issue

  mkdir -p ~/.config/f-spot/addins && make install

inside the SyncCatalog directory to get it to work.

Confirmed that the packaged 0.7.0 version misses SyncCatalog as well.
