(It's just about the "Author" field, I think, not "Source".)

Jdforrester-WMF changed the title from "Author not linked in files uploaded from inside the visual editor" to "In the cross-wiki upload tool, put in "[[User:Foo|own work]]" not just "own work"".

I mean the Author field, the {{own work}} is fine :-)
