Use FileImporter to import Commons-incompatible media from Commons to local wiki
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Similar to T214151:

Motivation
Some files can't be on Commons, but are allowed on local wikis.

Example
These files have to be deleted from Commons, but can be on dewiki: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Deletion_requests/Files_in_Category:Julie_Wolfthorn

  • It should be possible to move these files to local wikis using the FileExporter/FileImporter.
  • They shouldn't only be moved to German Wikipedia, but to all "roughly German" projects in one go, i.e. de, frr, dsb, bar, hsb, nds, pdc, stq, ... language versions and different projects such as Wikipedia, Wikibooks, Wikisource, …

Note
"Ideally though, Commons would have different license areas for different law systems, so that Commons would again be a single repository for the whole wikiverse, but with different access for the projects."
