Re: [Shotwell] Map Widget Update


Given the new Shotwell maintainer Jens, I was motivated to pick up the
work on the map feature:

The current state can be cloned from my libchamplain branch on github:

What changed since the last state in the bug report:
- Rebased on current master
- Copyright reassigned to SFC

To my understanding there is no need to assign copyright to the SFC you
can just keep it.

- Lock state on the map to avoid accidentally setting a position
  (by dropping an image on the map)
- Group nearby markers together, I also created a new icon for this

I'd be happy if someone could test this on a larger collection and be
interested if there's a performance impact. My tests have so far been
on smaller collections.

How big?

Of course a code review is most welcome too.

I will try to have a look this week-end.

I'm confident that we now have enough features for a stable Shotwell
release with the map widget. Jens, let me know if you feel that there's
anything crucial that's missing and that'd cause you to reject a patch.

One thing that comes to my mind is that the (SVG) images you use should have a proper license (with "proper" I mean one that can be used in Debian[1] such as CC-BY-SA [34].0) If we cannot guarantee this, things can get very annoying.
