Thank you for these records.


When do you plan to do the upload? If there is no particular emergency, we can add it to the whitelist during our next regular deployment window, Monday 17:00 CEST.

Audio format

Files are currently in wave format.

For example on the link you provide, the audio sample URL is

$ file sample.wav
RIFF (little-endian) data, WAVE audio, Microsoft PCM, 16 bit, mono 44100 Hz

According this Commons recommandation, "Wave containers usually contain uncompressed, lossless audio (PCM). If possible, please convert to FLAC before uploading."

Would such conversion be possible on your side or do you require assistance for this process?

No fixed date for upload planned yet.

FLAC sounds like a good idea though, will investigate further.
