VisualEditor: Upload-by-insertion of images via copy-paste
Open, LowestPublic8 Story Points

Description

[Suggestion from community.]

Copy-pasting in an image to the editor should automatically upload it to the wiki and insert it into the article.

After/on insertion (but before saving) the editor should be prompted to add meta-data (e.g. name, licence, source, ...).

I'd imagine we'd be less likely to accept this for Wikimedia wikis, but others (Wikia?) might be interested.

Tweaking summary to clarify this is for HTML copy-paste -- if we get a full URL to the web then this should be doable. If we get a relative URL or something on the local filesystem, there's less we can do. :)

Drag-and-drop of files or similar would be a separate concern.
