Per viwiki community consensus, please create a group named uploader that have the following right:
- Upload files from a URL (upload_by_url)
The whitelist (i.e. $wgCopyUploadsDomains) should only include upload.wikimedia.org. That being said, flickr.com and staticflickr.com are not allowed.
Sysops should be able to grant this flag. Also, the flag should be bundled into eliminator and sysop toolsets.
Thanks in advance.
