Bug is maybe to hard, it is more an observation ...
In tags.cpp, one description line for "TagInfo(0xc763, "TimeCodes", N_("TimeCodes")," contains "\n\n". Due to this the output from taglist.exe contains one empty line in between and one line which does not fit to the table-structure. So I think, this "\n\n" was not intended but a kind typing or copy error.

I don't know anything about this code as Niels has been the expert. When Exiv2 v0.26 was released, Niels retired from the project. I know he was very careful to keep all of this in line with ExifTool. If you have a test file, you could compare the output from Exiv2 and ExifTool. If you don't have a test file, the change you're proposing sounds OK to me. "OK" = I can't see any harm in changing this.

I'm having a short break from Exiv2 at the moment.

The code is now being stored on GitHub and I haven't submitted any changes since the release on 4/28. Perhaps you could update your code and submit a pull request. I believe Ben (draekko) will review and add it to the master (or trunk or whatever it's called on Git). https://github.com/Exiv2/exiv2

I believe you are correct that this is a cut'n'paste issue. I added that code last year in response #1180 I think the string in the code was copied from the Adobe specification. http://wwwimages.adobe.com/content/dam/Adobe/en/devnet/cinemadng/pdfs/CinemaDNG_Format_Specification_v1_1.pdf

Thanks for reporting this.
