Are there plans for Shotwell to have face recognition and to categorize photos according to faces?
We do have plans to add face recognition and a Faces (or People) view to Shotwell: http://trac.yorba.org/ticket/1702
There's been some movement on a patch from community contributors, but there's still plenty of work to do.
UPDATE: Adventuresome Shotwell users unafraid to run development code should read my answer to How can I compile Shotwell to be able to use the faces feature?
