digiKam with another database backend than SQLite

Last summer I saw bug #127321 an thought, this can be done by me (partly at least).
After some (successful) prototypic implementation, most of the time where spent into smooth integration in the existing
project:

  • adding a solution for migrating from SQLite to MySQL and vice versa
  • add possibiliy to start an own database server
  • and bug fixing...

Because only a few persons trying out this work (which resides atm. in a dedicated branch), the most bugs are possible undiscovered.

So if you are brave enough to crash your whole existing database structure (images are not touched), have a little amount of free time or you would like
to have the future right now and you are able to compile your version by yourself: You are the right person :)
