Are there "official" statements about directives for core/extra inclusion?
Are kde based packages automatically  in extra?
If this is not the case, why not include digikam and
digikamimageplugins packages for photo management?
digiKam employs the gPhoto2 program to communicate with digital still
cameras; whith older ones that are not directly supported by gPhoto2,
there is support for the Mass Storage protocol (USB and FireWire).
I'm using without any problem on my fc5 devel updated at yesterday changes
and digikamimageplugins 0.8 (based on digikamimageplugins-0.7.4-9.fc5 spec file
after downlaoding source and updating spec file; already contacted mantainer)
I think is the best for centralized photo management.
