Is this still a big issue? There doesn't appear to be any activity on this _or_ on the blocked bug report. Should we add in the licensing option for fair use? Should we just allow this under the custom / copyright tags option?

Either way, since it's been so long, bumping down priority.

Special:UploadWizard is not in a state that is readily suited for non-commons deploys. It needs much more refinement, especially with regard to which templates + arguments it needs to use to create the pages for instance.

I don't understand what needs to be done here? how can it be made compatible

Part of the work is figuring it out...
Probably it would require adding a second dropdown for fair use templates and other custom copyright tags, to be configured on a system message.
Per comment 5, however, this would be not particularly useful as long as the extension assumes Commons templates are available, so the dependency on those should be removed in favour of a configurable system.

A) See bug 49443

B) Is there anything we need to do that isn't already covered by the "other reason / I don't know" section of the "not my work" license list? You mention custom copyright tags, which we support.

You mention
custom copyright tags, which we support.

Really? How? Is it documented anywhere?

Gryllida opened a RfC which will hopefully help in identifying the requirements for wider adoption of UploadWizard, if not in making it an actual priority.

@matmarex Is this a blocker to forbid deployment on other wikis?

fa.wikipedia would like to get the wizard in T33070. At request time, the only blocker was a RTL bug, now fixed.

I left a longer reply on T33070#2253518. I wouldn't say this is a blocker, it just means you won't be able to (conveniently) add fair-use tags to files uploaded with UploadWizard…
