Subject: [Wikitech-l] Easy upload of Flickr photos to Commons
To: Wikimedia developers <wikitech-l(a)lists.wikimedia.org>rg>, Drecodeam(a)gmail.com
I hereby celebrate that we've merged Ankur Anand's (drecodeam's) Flickr
integration work into UploadWizard, and that administrators on Commons
can now upload photos directly from Flickr. See
Once we've shaken this out on the live site, I believe we'll be able to
open it up so all users will be able to upload multiple images at once
from Flickr to Wikimedia Commons. I can only imagine how great this
will be for Wiki Loves Monuments next year. :-) Thanks to Ankur, Ryan
Kaldari, Mark Holmquist, and everyone else who worked on this!
The Gerrit changeset that went through 26 patchsets (if at first you
don't succeed, try, try again): https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/12269/
Ankur worked on this as part of his 2012 Google Summer of Code project.
His HTML5 drag-and-drop support and geolocation metadata import
for UploadWizard, still need polish before we can merge them:
free to help.
Also, our blog post about this year's GSoC students is now re-posted on
the Google open source blog:
