In the near future the University of Amsterdam is going to upload images to wikimedia commons.
On our side we are going to use a temporary environment, which has no other purpose then to upload the images.
Therefore we would like to restrict access to the server.
Is it sufficient to restrict access to the commons.wikimedia.org domain or will that be giving problems?
It would be interesting to make a proposal to the community that the
whitelist is dropped for some demonstrably good uploaders. I would have to
think about the case for dropping it all together, as GWT rights are often
granted to uploaders with virtually no long term history on Wikimedia
projects. In fact one feature of GWT is that it can be used by GLAM
professionals with no previous project experience, in particular may find
unexpected difficulties in handling community contention over their uploads.

I work at the National Museum of Australia. A number of years ago the Museum started preparing images for batch upload to Wikimedia Commons. I am just picking this project back up again.
It seems that we have the images and supporting content ready to go in an excel document. An a Wikimedia Commons and Beta Commons set up (username is NatMuseumAust for both). I believe the next step is to use the GLAMwiki Toolset to batch upload this material to the Beta server and then to the Production server once we're happy with how the data is mapping correctly.
May I please have GWToolset rights on the beta and production sites so that we can progress the upload of our images? Please let me know if you need further information.
Thanks in advance for your help.
