matthiasmullie updated the task description. (Show Details)

Current status: MediaInfo content is included in other wikis.
E.g. has unstyled (because MediaInfo is not installed on enwiki) captions that it got from Commons.
I've submitted T221071: We don't want MediaInfo content to show up on wikis sharing Commons files to hide MediaInfo content from other wikis for now (because it looks terrible), which is probably the easiest solution right now.

If we do want MediaInfo content to show up on other wikis (I honestly don't know if we do, and to what extent), we're going to need to do more work.
This ticket is for figuring out what that will be.
