I wanted to make people aware that I have uploaded Digikam 5.0.0 packages to 
Debian earlier today.

I uploaded to experimental for staging for a few reasons:

1. To work through the build issues on various architectures. 

2. The configuration files are in a new location, but digikam does no migration 
[1].  To the user, it appears you are starting from scratch and there is a 
risk of confusion -- the referenced bug is from someone who thought 
(mistakenly) that a migration procedure was required.  The bug also references 
possibly using a KF5 function KConfig::copyTo() to migrate the files, but then 
concludes that some digikam 4 settings cause digikam 5 to crash.  At this 
point, it seems that automatic migration is unsafe but that the initial 
configuration wizard should be augmented with text that describes the upgrade-
from-4.x scenario better.  I'm seeking suggestions on what might be the best 
approach here.

3. The showfoto internationalized docs are missing due to an upstream bug [2].  
The bug is now patched upstream; however, the fix re-structures the source 
tarball so it is unclear whether this is easy to port into the current 
version; or better to wait for upstream 5.1.0 source tarball.
