Thank you so much for this.
For me the most pressing issues are:
* allowing punctuation in the filenames
* the layout of the Artwork, so that the fields occur in their usual
standard order & missing fields are included
* moving the 'gwtoolset-title-identifier' and
'gwtoolset-url-to-the-media-file' fields out of the artwork template, eg
into a template of their own
I hope these are all fairly small changes, almost cosmetic, that can be
sorted out quickly.
But they would make a huge difference -- I've already had a sharp note
on my Commons talk page that the images have filled up the automatic
"Artwork template with incorrect parameter" maintenance category,
making the category useless for identifying other user's genuine
mistakes because it's full of the 430 images that I uploaded.
As for the filenames, and the template fields, I really really want to
get these sorted. Really the only sensible way for me to fix them is to
re-run the entire upload, once the tool is patched.
But until I've done the re-upload that's blocking me from doing a lot of
essential plumbing -- eg properly categorising the images; wikilinking
their subjects, adding them into articles (including swapping the new
images in instead of a lot of existing inferior versions -- which are
exactly the things that are needed to make the upload look good, if the
upload is going to be cited in the official release at the end of the
month. But at the moment I'm blocked, because there is no point in
doing any of those things, if I know that I'm going to do a batch
re-upload that will wipe all of those things out.
So I hope these key things aren't big fixes, but if it could be possible
to get a patched version of the tool up and running I'd be incredibly

And thanks for the constructive feedback. I'll go through it together with Dan Entous
who developed the tool and create tickets based on them. The project doesn't have
further funding right now but the fixes that are small we're happy to make. We'll
get back to you on this list.
