was it uploaded recently? after the new Special:Log for GWToolset was added? i didn’t see any of the titles above listed in the current Special:Log, this month or last, so my guess is that they were uploaded prior to that logging feature?

These files were uploaded in July, hence before IIRC.

(This issue got under my radar only now because a Commons editor found them & tagged them (appropriately) as missing info)

whoops, should have noticed the date/time stamp.

because someone else edited the pages, GWToolset won’t upload to the page again. is it possible to delete the pages and then run a batch upload just these pages? i have run this scenario locally before and it worked in that environment, so i believe it will work on commons as well.

The pages got deleted and I finally got around to upload them again. Everything seems fine. Changing for "Unconfirmed" but that is still fairly weird.

(Note that links are still red because I renamed the file because of the double-extension)

I suspect this is not gwtoolset's fault, but MW. We've had intermitent problems before where this has happened. At the time I suspected (but could not confirm) it to be related to external storage timing out/not saving properly.
