Set up WikibaseMediaInfo's Lua Scribunto interface to work cross-wiki
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

Here's my use case... On English Wikipedia we need a template to dynamically add a file page link to an audio file link based on the license of the audio file (specifically whether or not it requires attribution). Right now, this isn't possible, so we have to add an explicit "attribution=no" parameter to every template call for a CC0 audio file. It would be so nice if this could just work automatically.

Proposed solution: Set up a light version of WikibaseMediaInfo on all the Wikipedias that just implements the Lua Scribunto interface and provides access to the structured data on Commons from within Wikipedia Modules.
