gthumb has the ability to store image metadata in the image file itself using
the libiptcdata library. This feature is very useful, and is automatically
enabled if the libiptcdata library is present when gthumb is built.
The only bug here is that libiptcdata should be packaged, and made a
prerequisite for gthumb. This should be trivial since libiptcdata already comes
with a spec file and has few prerequisities.

Patch to gthumb's spec file

spec file for libiptcdata
I've attached a patch to gthumb's spec file along with a spec file for
libiptcdata to make the suggested changes. I've tested them under FC5 and they
work as intended.
Too late for FC6. Putting on FC7Target
Sad, as it is such a simple working fix that has been available for some time.
Well, another half a year of building gthumb myself.
libiptcdata is now available in Fedora Extras, so it should be easy to apply
this patch to the gthumb spec file now.

Or after the Core and Extras merge is complete.
Moving off FC7Target
libiptcdata.ppc64 is now available.
