  • If you want to see an RfC supporting implementation of that, let me know.

  • If you want to see an RfC supporting implementation of that, let me know.

Yes, please.

(In reply to Tomasz W. Kozlowski from comment #3)

Yes, please.

If no one else beats me, I have time, Friday, MAR 28 next week, to prepare an RfC.

I'm sure this is a dupe...

And I seem to recall there being a suggestion from ops to not want to do this, in favour of a better server seide copy thing

Yep, Faidon rejected this request in the past. Trouble is, no-one is interested in writing a "better server side copy thing"...

I was also troubled by Faidon's comment at bug 42473 comment 15:

Moreover, copying files internally seems wrong to me in general. It's
probably okay if it's a limited use case, but if it's something that's going
to get popular

He is seemingly unaware how popular this is already: hundreds of thousands of files have been copied across to Commons over the years.
