I would argue that this is critical if we are to replace Shotwell with F-Spot. Many users will not (or cannot) migrate from F-Spot to shotwell and risk losing all their tags, modifications, Favourites and ratings.

That first sentence should read, "...replace F-Spot with Shotwell." Sorry for the mixup.

The Yorba team (makers of Shotwell) agrees this is critical. We're planning to implement this in some form for the 0.7 release later this summer in time for Ubuntu 10.10.

closing the solang task, could you open a new bug against solang if that needs tracking? otherwise that one still shows up on the shotwell workitems tracking
