I was just passing by (noticed this task on Phabricator's main page). Could someone provide a link to the cross-wiki upload tool mentioned, please. Do not think I have heard of it before and it sounds curious. Thanks.

@Base: It's a new built-in feature of VisualEditor that allows an image to be uploaded immediately while editing a page without leaving VisualEditor.

And the wikitext editor. Released in September.

OMG. I have heard about it for VE but didn't about wikitext one. Thank you for the information. Gods. Where is it documented?

The bug has been fixed now, and the fix will be deployed to Wikimedia wikis this week with MediaWiki 1.27.0-wmf.9, per https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki_1.27/Roadmap.

It really wasn't (it's the same tool though). I have now documented it at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Cross-wiki_upload. Let me know if anything you'd want to read is missing :) (preferably on the talk page there).
