Description

Description:
Right now files on a page protected by cascading protection are protected if they are on the local wiki, but not if they're on Commons. It would be useful to extend cascading protection to Commons files. Our most prominent cascade-protected pages, like the Main Page, primarily use images and files from Commons.


Version: unspecified
Severity: enhancement

Going suggest WONTFIX on this one. One wiki's protection policies and decisions should not dictate another's, imho.

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.
