Allow Special:FileDuplicateSearch to match against previously deleted images
OpenPublic

Description

Author: mike.lifeguard+bugs

Description:
Would be a nice feature to have Special:FileDuplicateSearch also search the checksum for deleted files to detect re-upload of previously-deleted files. One will be able to detect repetitive copyvio or other problematic files uploads under different names. Currently, one must search through their deletion log for blue links and check them (which matches only if they reupload under the same name). This would allow much easier detection of repeated copyvio uploads under any name.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
