PageImages currently provides the first image that matches a set of heuristics, freely licensed or not. This is excellent for using to illustrate the article in mobile web and mobile apps, in places like lead images and search.
It would be nice if PageImages could also provide a page image that is freely licensed (e.g. CC BY-SA, PD, etc). This would be really nice for, for example, the cards generated by Share a Fact on the mobile apps, to ensure that the image that's used is as free as possible to allow generation of truly CC BY-SA licensed cards.
- As a content sharer, I would like a permissively licensed Share a Fact card so that I can freely share it in as many places as possible
- As a mobile product manager, I would like to be able to find a freely licensed representative image for a page so that the mobile app can generate very permissively licensed Share a Fact cards
