Yes, would be fine to have a newer shotwell.

When I tried to build shotwell from the AUR package
it tried to load "libgexiv2-git".

But that package does not exist.

There only is the package "libgexiv2-git 20110430-1".

So either libgexiv2-git 20110430-1 must be used in the
shotwell package, or maybe the "libgexiv2-git 20110430-1"
will not work togehter with that shotwell version.

Or maybe only "libgexiv2" should be given as dependency, which
is avaialable via pacman. But I don't know if that version
of "libgexiv2" might give problems.

Any ideas on this?

Or would you like to update the shotwell stuff soon?
This would be fine.
