Where might I get or mirror a dump of Commons media files?

Subject: [Wiki-Medicine] 2000 pathology images by Dr. Yale Rosen to
**Apologies for cross-posting**
I am very happy to share the news of Dr. Yale Rosen's donation of images to
Wikimedia Commons. He had shared over 2000 images related to pathology,
many of which are rare images, during his long career as a pathologist. He
used to run two Flickr streams, one for Atlas of Medical Foreign Bodies
<https://www.flickr.com/photos/foreignbodies> and other for pulmonary
pathology <https://www.flickr.com/photos/pulmonary_pathology/> images. I
had first approached Dr. Rosen for donating a few images, but he kindly
offered to donate his entire collection of approximately 2000 images plus
the contents from his pathology website <http://granuloma.homestead.com/> for
use on Wikimedia projects. He had shared several images under CC-BY-SA or
lower in the past, and User: CFCF
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:CFCF> had uploaded them to Commons in
2014. This month, he moved his entire collection to CC-BY-SA, giving me the
possibility to upload around 1000 images to Commons. All images from Dr.
Rosen's Flickr streams are now available on Wikimedia Commons here
Please feel free to engage in categorizing, adding structured data and
uptaking these images to Wikimedia projects.Kindly write to me if you have
any questions or comments.
