Reminder: If you want to test the import of files and don't want to be limited by the beta.wikipedia file lists: https://test.wikimedia.beta.wmflabs.org/wiki/Special:ImportFile?clientUrl= allows the import from the "real" Wikipedias. Just add you file location to the last part of this URL. e.g.:

https://test.wikimedia.beta.wmflabs.org/wiki/Special:ImportFile?clientUrl=https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datei:Carl_Bantzer,_Willingshausen_1898.jpg

Ok plz forget about that, at least if you try to submit the import. It seems that the configuration run on that server is a bit conflictive, since the system is open to external wiki imports on one hand but tires to make sense of the user names in a multi-wiki context. We probably need to look into that, see ticket: T213683

It shouldn't be a blocker for deployment I would say, because the configuration there is quite clear..
