Digikam (KDE's album management program) uses its own
XML file format to store album information such as
category, date, pictures and comments.
It would be nice if AlbumShaper could read this data
when creating its albums, since AS doesn't do
management as well as Digikam does (but the HTML output
is much better and much more configurable by using themes).
If you don't have Digikam available, I could attach one
XML file so you could check it.
