please let me revive this thread.
There is an ongoing discussion on it.source about the new Internet Archive policy, because this is becoming a *quality problem* for the community.
You can see for yourself, here:
this is the detail from a djvu (handmade by the user Alex)
Please look at the pictures to understand the problem :-)
The compression of the IA pdf is unfortunately too high, and also the OCR is not that good.
We can't probably ask IA to change its mind and redo djvus, there are other more technical ways.
But I'd like this to be a problem to be solved together, maybe directly into the magnificent "IA Upload" tool.
Wikisource prides itself with quality, so it's right to demand good scans.
What I fear is that bigger communities will have expert users that will make their own djvus,
and smaller ones that will have to keep IA uploaded PDFs...
Do you have any solutions? Is your community worried about this?
