I got sidetracked by some issues with the intelligent scissors tool.
I have just committed a first patch that improves the tool a bit
(bug #398309) and includes some new status bar messages.  I also
prepared some code to fix bug #345541 (usage of modifiers in the
scissors tool) and I will commit it soon.  I still have to commit a
slightly larger patch dealing with the status bar messages for the
transform tools.  I will try to commit that tonight.

As I mentioned on IRC a couple of times and probably here as well,
it would be better to schedule it for 2.6 and disable it in 2.4.

I do not want to delay 2.4 because of this feature and it is
unlikely that I could finish the editor in the next couple of weeks
or even that someone could help me to bring it to a reasonably
stable state.  I will get back to the metadata editor as soon as
I am done with some of the 2.4 bugs, but I think that it will take
too much time to implement the missing features: finish the
conversion from and to EXIF, add the conversion from and to IPTC,
finish the widget re-organization, add descriptions and help
messages for all XMP/EXIF/IPTC values that can be set from the GUI.
Also, adding/replacing the support for metadata in all file
plug-ins will require some changes in the GUI of these plug-ins.

It is probably not a good idea to do that under time pressure and
under a string freeze, that's why I think that postponing this to
2.6 would be the better choice...  unless we do not plan for 2.4
before the summer, but I hope that we will manage to release it
