Feature summary (what you would like to be able to do and where): When an editor attempts to upload a file to Commons, automatically detect this and convert the upload into a FileImport
Use case(s) (list the steps that you performed to discover that problem, and describe the actual underlying problem which you want to solve. Do not describe only a solution): Problem is editors breaking attribution/edit history by uploading files uploaded to other projects as their own.
Benefits (why should this be implemented?): Would help maintain CC-BY-SA 3.0/GFDL compliance by ensuring attribution/edit history is maintained across projects.
