Delete moved file from home wiki
Closed, DuplicatePublic


After a successful "move" to Commons, delete the original file. Before deleting the file, use the file checksum to make sure that the file you are deleting is actually on Commons.

Only do the deletion, if the whole transfer was successful (including the template mapping)

NB: No link changes are needed to be done, if the name of the file has stayed the same

This is part of fulfilling on wish of the German-community speaking wishlist of 2013. For details see the parent task

We should think about weather of not this is a good idea.
We could just allow bots to pick up the duplicates, tag them and them be deleted via the normal channels (at least initially).
