However: You can email photos you have taken quite easily. Should we
establish some service around that?
* log into Commons (once)
* mail image from iPhone to selfupload(a)commons.wikimedia.org (or whatever)
* get emailed back a URL with your (temporary) file in a form, pre-filled:
** File name is title of your mail
** Description is the body of your mail
** GFDL and CC-BY-SA-3.0 chosen (self-made)
** Author field is a link to your user name (you're logged in, after all)
** Date is extracted from EXIF data
** Coordinates are pre-filled if you had the iPhone add the GPS data
** OTRS can be automatically filed and added to the form
Would also be useful for non-iPhone uploads...
Quite a nice system. There's photosubmission@wikimedia, but it's human
If upload from url can be enabled from trusted domains, (ie. toolserver)
that could be easily implemented in a few weeks.
