MGA73 added a comment to T213409: Improve/Dispose AbuseFilter checks on old text revisions.

It is correct that it would be possible for an attacker to upload bad stuff to xx.wiki and then import it to Commons. But FileImporter only works for AutoConfirmed users? So an attacker would have to make many good edits on xx.wiki and Commons before it will work?

In that case I prefer that we add information during import (template or category) instead of blocking for all imports.

MGA73 added a comment to T267729: Configure wikitech.wikimedia.org for FileImporter.

I made https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:FileImporter/Data/wikitech.wikimedia but it will only work if the file has a formal license template like GFDL, Cc-by-sa-4.0 or MIT for example.

I added some help on https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WMDE_Technical_Wishes/Move_files_to_Commons/Configuration_file_documentation and hope it is better.

I like FileImporter and I thinks it is a bad idea to block it on some wikis. If good users verify that files are good then those files should be possible to move to Commons.

I can't reproduce this error. Is it still a problem or can it be closed?

MGA73 added a comment to T198372: Make sure people understand which template prevents them to moving a file to Commons.

I think the best solution is to add text to [[:de:Vorlage:Bild-PD-alt-100]] or [[:de:Vorlage:NoCommons]] telling the user what to do. That way we do not have to make the code more complex and it is a wiki problem that needs to be fixed on wiki.

MGA73 added a comment to T233575: Should it be possible to move files that are protected on the source wiki?.

Yes all files should be possible to move. Once it is moved it is up to local wiki to decide if the file should be deleted or not. If another wiki wants to use the file I see no reason why we want to prevent them to do so.

MGA73 added a comment to T225897: Cannot access wikitext of some old revisions on Commons, only get a comparison.

It seems that structured data breaks old revisions. Not just for random files but for ALL files. So soon we have 60 million files on Commons where the old revisions are broken.

I wanted to copy some text from the old edit and add it to the current page.

NO! If I understand this correct the request is to make a multiedit where the file page and the structured data is changed with one edit!

MGA73 added a comment to T258945: Data loss during file import from Japanese Wikipedia.

Filepages are now deleted on Commons and the files are now imported with succes. No problems! So it was just a temporary issue.

I was importing many files very fast so that may have been the cause of the problem. I never had problems like that before so if logs show nothing special its okay to close this and spend the time om something else. The easy solution is to delete the broken pages on Commons and try the import again.

MGA73 added a comment to T189196: Add link to source to edit summary.

The original request is about filenames in the edit summary. So the link will always be [[:c:File:<name on Commons>]]. The benefit of a clickable wikilink is that it is much faster to navigate to the new location. Personally I have never thought the long edit summary was a problem but I can see the benefit of a wikilink I can click on. (I just realized that this is an old ticket. I thought it was related to one about making edit summary shorter on source wiki)

I just moved 50 files from ja.wiki, 10 from vi.wiki and 10 from lv.wiki and no problems! Thanks for fixing! I love you guys/girls! :-)

MGA73 added a comment to T232311: Investigation: Should HotCat integrate with the file import preview page?.

I don't see a big need for that. You can just import the file and use HotCat after the import. I would like the import to be as fast and easy as possible.

This should perhaps be in another post so just ignore it if not useful here: I tried to import https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/ファイル:コバギボウシ_Hosta_albo-marginata.JPG before FileImporter crashed but the import failed because there is a broken/missing file in filehistory. So I had to upload it "manually". I did not bother to file a bug because there is hopefully not many broken files like this.

I think it would be nice if bot(s) did not crash when they find a non-excisting wiki or if there is a link to a wiki that is not yet supported fully.
