I'll let others answer the questions about the bot etc.

I would like to ask you some info about the "Flickr to Commons" procedure
Maybe I'm drowning in a glass of water (don't sure if this is the figure,
but I would like to understand it better.
Lodewijk explained the Italian group that there are tools for it (I knew
the flickr2commons bot,
and AFAIK it still goes on restlessly from toolserver).
He also said that we could use Flickr tags to put some information,
as the monument identifier.
Is there, somewhere, some documentation about it?
(I only found this:
I was thinking that, given the lists of monuments,
one could engage *right now* the Flickr community.
We could have people who want to participate to WLM
* put the tags
* change the license in CC-BY-SA
in these months,
I think the criterium we used was to have them add the picture to the Wiki
Loves Monuments Country group on Flickr within September. Probably it is
best to not push them too hard before then, because otherwise we run the
risk that others will upload their pictures to commons in August, and they
would be disqualified when adding them in September. The bot would only run
(daily or so) on that particular Flickr Group.
and in September we would run the bot to upload everything on Commons.
(Is the procedure logically correct? Do I miss something?)
Now, my issue is with the timing.
--> If I put/upload some picture in Flickr in CC-BY-SA, does the bot
upload in Commons right away?
This would spoil their participation in WLM.
At the same time, I think it would be important to contct users on Flickr
and have them
re-license (or upload) their photos in CC-BY-SA 8and add metadata as well).
I hope to have been clear enough.
