Forgive me for being a little bit cynical about this,
but if people are going to be getting all excited
about image use policy shouldn't someone also address
the glaring lack of image dumps.
The last image dump for any project was Novemeber
2005, nearly 15 months ago. Not only that, but even
the links to those very old dumps have been removed
Brion has said that this situation was created by a
lack of adequate file servers to handle the very large
(e.g. 400 GB) dumps that would be created now. Even
assumming that is correct, surely WMF can afford the
$15k (or whatever it is) to address this issue.
The good news is we got some new file servers in recently. The bad news
is we haven't had the time to set up a public dump yet.
The worse news is that the dumps would be so huge that no one will
actually be able to get or use them anyway. ;)
