Licensing

I reviewed the project site and it seems curated and managed.

They're hiring, they offer for developers an API, they seem to well understand the CC-0 implications.

Furthermore, each photographer is well identified, has an user page (here an example), so it's possible to know who is the photographer who published the photo the CC-0 license.

That's looks good to me, as far as licensing is concerned.

Community support

The requester is a trusted user on Wikimedia Commons, so that looks good too.

Goal of the request

What are you trying to achieve with this domain whitelisted: are you going to use GWT or manually through Special:Upload?

I was just planning to use Special:Upload. Thanks.
