libexif, the EXIF Tag Parsing Library, has been uploaded to

libexif is a library for parsing, editing, and saving EXIF data. It is
intended to replace lots of redundant implementations in command-line
utilities and programs with GUIs.  libexif supports parsing, editing and
saving of EXIF data. All EXIF tags described in EXIF standard 2.1 are
supported.  libexif is written in plain C and does not require any
additional library.  libexif can only handle some maker notes, and even
those not very well.  More work needs to be done. Note that libmnote has
been merged with libexif - it is no longer needed.
