Bug ID: 391544
           Summary: Metadata not written to image after renaming Tag
           Product: digikam
           Version: 5.9.0
          Platform: MS Windows
                OS: MS Windows
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Metadata-Maintenance
  Target Milestone: ---

Possibly not a bug, but when a tag is renamed or when a tag hierarchy is
changed, no changes are written to the images, despite Digikam showing these
changes in the interface.

Clicking on "Item -> Write metadata to selected images" is required to actually
save those changes.

Maybe a duplicate of bug #200162 ?

If this is on purpose, there should be some warning that this information must
be manually synchronized with the database. If it is not, this is inconsistent
with other metadata edits, which are written immediately to the file.

A possible alternative would be warning the user of how many pictures will be
affected by this change (e.g. "Renaming this Tag will change metadata in 1234
files, is that ok?").

Either way, I feel the user should be warned, as it can lead to inconsistencies
in the tag structure.
