As of the deployment of the wmf3 branch today, Upload Wizard has a new
feature that lets you copy the metadata of the first file to the
entire batch (you can pick which parts of the metadata you want to
copy). This should be helpful for users regularly uploading large
To use it, upload a batch of more than one file through
and use the
"Copy information to all uploads below" menu on the first upload.

Note that the feature tries to be clever about the numbering of the
first file -- if there's a number with less than four digits in the
file already, it increments it; otherwise it adds and increments "01".
If you're uploading a file with a number in the name that should not
be incremented, like a street address, but still want to auto-number
all uploads, just add "01" -- it will always increase the rightmost
number. We'll see if we're being too clever here and may revert to
just stupidly adding "01" to the title.
