I'm not sure i'd have good enough programming skills to take this on myself, but
one thing that would be very useful for the flickr tool - which I use all the time and is
really invaluable by the way - is if you could do group uploads or more than one image at
a time. Please could you pass this on to whoever comes forward to do any re-write.

Subject: [Commons-l] Maintainers of collection of flickr tools
In the past few years I have been creating some Flickr related tools. These are:
* FlickreviewR: A bot that reviews the licenses from images uploaded from Flickr
* FlickreviewR human reviewer: A bot that re-reviews reviews by humans
* Flickr upload bot: A web interface that allows easy access
FlickreviewR has over 110k edits and with Flickr upload bot over 12k
uploads have been performed. Unfortunately I have not always been able
to care of those bots decently.
Therefore I would like to propose to add maintainers to those bots;
preferably as a stable toolserver project on stable.toolserver.org
Who would be interested in maintaining these bots?
The bots are written in Python and use the mwclient library to edit
and upload, which I also wrote. I will also give commit access to
mwclient on SourceForge to maintainers.
The FlickreviewR bots' code are in relatively good shape, reasonably
ok documented and can be easily understood I believe.
The Flickr upload bot however has horrible code. It was basically my
first large webapp and I had some strange design ideas by then. I have
attempted rewriting it, but have not had the time yet.
Feel free to forward this mail to other people who might be interested
