I thought this might be of interest to some people here. If someone has 
interest in taking up this task, now would be a good time to speak up…

To give some unwanted advice:
Basic export/share type plugins should be quite easily ported to purpose.
For some of the kipi plugins (reverse geocoding, exiv date/time adjustment 
come to mind) it may be necessary to add a new plugin type to purpose, but 
AFAICS that should be relatively easy as well.

On a related note: support for purpose plugins is right around the corner 
(branch feature/purposeIntegration is in good shape, just needs some 
additional testing).

Cheers,
  Johannes

Kipi Plugins are the image plugins used by Gwenview and other apps.  They
come from Digikam but that project has moved on to a new framework.
Someone should go over the plugins, throw out the broken ones and work out
what apps still use it (Spectacle? KPhotoAlbum?) and consider if they can
be easily ported to something else like Purpose.  Anyone want it?
