This has been in the Village Pump for about two days. Please give the discussion more time and land this after two weeks or so (Aug 27?). Thanks.

Blocked on Ops? Isn't this more "Waiting for MW deployment"?

Dzahn triaged this task as Medium priority.

I wonder if this function is feasible, as I saw on wikimedia commons, a whitelist is given for url-upload via Upload form.

@WhitePhosphorus can you confirm the status of the discussion/if consensus has reached in that linked discussion? It doesn't look clear to me. It looks to me that the discussion was archived by a bot, and was not properly closed.

For the discussion, It should be considered a consensus has been reached. However, the task is still stalled due to T44473.
