I am delighted to share this with everyone that the improved IA-Upload tool
<https://ia-upload.toolforge.org/> is now available for use. The tool now
provides a drop-down feature to select whether to directly upload PDFs from
IA to Commons or to upload DJVUs using the existing workflow.
The tool also checks (using iwbacklinks) whether the requested IA item has
already been uploaded under a different name, and if so it shows an error.
The improvements were made by User:Lautgesetz from Panlex as a part of the
following Project Grant: Grants:Project/PanLex/Balinese palm-leaf
transcription platform on Wikisource
There are a few more improvements to the tool than what I mentioned above
and you can read more about them here:
