Importing metadata and Covers from Amazon & Librarything

I installed Calibre 0.6.29 and download the sourcecode with bazaar.

I can see that there are two plugins for Amazon & Librarything named amazon.py and library_thing.py in calibre/src/calibre/ebooks/metadata, but I don't know how can I use them.

When I search metadata and covers calibre says me that it would search in googlebooks and isbndb (with my key) but don't say anything about amazon or librarything.

How can I activate them?

They are automatically activated. google books and isbndb are used to identify the book. Once the book is identified covers/ratings/tags etc are downloaded from amazon and librarything

I understand that calibre identify the book with the ISBN and then use it to download data from Amazon and Librarything, right?
