Thanks for the answer.
Since it was urgent I have completed the uploads on Friday using Pywikibot.
Looking at the logs today, it seems that the jobs were unstuck today and
yesterday − of course, they failed with « already existing files » errors.
I am tempted to assume that the problem did not lie on the GWT side but on
MediaWiki / Wikimedia Commons side.

this is a tough one to troubleshoot. the issue seems
to be that there was
no additional "metadata job created" entry after 14:57, 28 November 2014. a
couple of thoughts:
1. the job runner picked up the job that creates additional media file
jobs, but something went wrong - is there someone who could investigate
what may have happened with the job runner?
2. something went wrong when the job that creates additional media file
jobs ran. there should be an exception message in the php log - is there
someone who could investigate that?
Should we open a Phabricator task for this ? Not sure this list is
monitored by the relevant folks.
