Kate Turner has added code to MediaWiki to load licensing information
directly from the Commons when viewing a local image description page.
What this means is that you can go to, e.g.,
and get the licensing information for that image from the Wikimedia
Commons without having to "click through."
This has been a highly requested feature for some time.
This will only work for wikis that have been upgraded to MediaWiki 1.5.
See Special:Version of your wiki to see if you have been upgraded already.
The text of MediaWiki:Sharedupload may need to be updated.
Many, many thanks to Kate for making this much requested change.
