Summary0009303: remove warning when importing SVG files
Descriptionsince using SVG is the preferred way to import vector graphics into scribus i propose to remove the warning popping up when one imports a SVG file:
- most SVG files are imported correctly
- many things in scribus don't (fully) work as expected but no warning is issued
- the alert scares the newcomers more than it gives any useful information (all the other users just click away the alert: they already know whether scribus will import their SVG correctly or not... and if they doubt, they will check after having imported the grahics!)
TagsNo tags attached.

solving the related bug, may help to solve this one, too: if the message would be optional / get raised only when a relevant item has been discarded it would already be much better!

The problem I see here is: How can Scribus decide what is relevant?

scribus may have a list of fields which are know to be irrelevant and safe to discard.

i think of most of the headers (author name, ...) as the simplest example.

the default is clearly not to handle an unknown field as irrelevant...

where's the problem?
