Thank you! I was just going to come look for these... now we could use something similar for all data formats.

There don't seem to be any other bugs (of any sort) on mediazilla about data formats, so I include 43151 here for similarity's sake. Feel free to remove it if you don't feel data is 'media' enough.

Oh please not, until you've shown that there's a need for that.

Given that we now have a whole WMF [[mw:Multimedia]] team, I very much doubt this is "Low" priority -> setting to Normal.

Nemo: Good point, thanks!

And for transparency, the Multimedia team will likely handle the following components in Bugzilla:

MediaWiki > File management
MediaWiki > Uploading
MediaWiki extensions > GlobalUsage
MediaWiki extensions > ImageMap
MediaWiki extensions > PageTiffHandler
MediaWiki extensions > PdfHandler
MediaWiki extensions > Score
MediaWiki extensions > TimedMediaHandler
MediaWiki extensions > UploadWizard

There are also the "Cortado" and "mwEmbed" products in Bugzilla but there's not much happening anymore (what to do with their bugs is handled in bug 54063).

What is this tracking task good for?
Shouldn't just all tasks be associated to the corresponding Multimedia projects anyway?
