Re: [Shotwell] Repairing the event field in the database

Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm weary of any program modifying my photos after they have been created. If shotwell had a method of e.g. exporting a json file containing a mapping between the MD5 of a file and its tags, and allow importing it, I would be much more likely to use it.

Bugs happen, and I don't want to risk shotwell garbling any photos.

That said, I know enough of the database by now so that I could do the following:

1. Export the TagTable, e.g. to a table as above.
2. Erase the old database.
3. Write a script to reimport the tags.

If I can't figure out why shotwell keeps corrupting the database, I'll most likely try that.

Quite interesting to see how you have worked this out, and it should
be helpful to others with similar issues.

I'm still curious as to why you don't want to save the tags to the
images themselves?
