Werner would you use more words please :-)
If I scan in Videos all backends see the addition. Because of fumbles in the mac frontend which I mostly use it does not retrive metadata. My normal use is to scan and retrieve on a linux frontend and the macs just inherit the entries.
There was an ongoing issue with metadata. I compile my own be/fe a recent gil pull and all works.
It is easy to build from src, harder to package so I build on each frontend. (rather than package debs and rpm)
