Hi Jens, I agree that we should not be forcing the DNN model download for everyone. It could be an optional 'data' package which is required only for face recognition and not detection. This data package could probably be under a different license like you said.So I will assume the basic facedetect binary would be packaged with shotwell, with a dbus service hook to launch it.

You should not care about this at all. Either me (for flatpak) or whoever is responsible for the distribution packages. Being D-Bus (and running on the public busses) automatic launching comes for free with D-Bus activation, given the D-Bus service files are installed properly. But we can do that in a second step. The more problematic thing I see here is that I would not like to force everyone to download 31Mb of data for a feature they are probably not even using The other issue is that I have a vague memory of Apache + GPL being a bit of a problem. So probably the face detect binary might have to go into a separate, differently licensed package that uses D-Bus for "license isolation" anyway. Let me have a look at the code first, though.
