That may have been me--I made changes to that file today to fix
the "Benutzer_Diskussion" bug, and add the ISBN update. I'm
usually pretty good about keeping up with CVS, but I may have
dropped the ball on this one.
Yesterday I fixed a couple typos in LanguageDe.php (Portugiesisch and
Schwedisch were misspelled in the list of interlanguage links). I
committed the fixes to CVS, and copied the updated version onto the live
server, and everything was hunky-dory.
Today around 2 pm (PDT) somebody copied the old version back with
misspellings intact... I put the latest CVS version back in its place;
if there was a reason for the revert (such as other changes made),
please commit the changes to CVS and make sure a current, consistent
version is put on the live server.

Yes, there's a hard limit of 1Mb for uploads. It's not
recommended to upload images larger than 100k, or sounds
much larger than 200k. 2Mb is definitely larger than
would be useful for an encyclopedia. Such a file should
be on an external site and merely referenced from here.
After a lot of effort i have get the creator of some audio so far to release his content under GNU/FDL
But when i attempt to upload the audio on wikipedia i always get

Could not copy file "" to "/usr/local/apache/htdocs/upload/d/d3/Ww1_rap_by_pagel.ogg".
Is this normal ? The file is 2.11mb

It's already been remarked that these words are not unique,
so that some language marker must be used.
For user friendliness, to link from one language's wiki to another's data,
I'd allow using *both* language's term for the upload space.
For example, if I (on [[en:]]) want to use [[de:bild:foo.png]],
then I should be able to do it with "[[de:image:foo.png]]"
(so that I don't need to know what they call the namespace on [[de:]])
*or* "[[de:bild:foo.png]]" (so that I can cut and paste the wiki
from the page where I found the image on [[de:]]).

The latter isn't a problem; it can link to local images in the
Dutch wikipedia as well--I didn't intend to be able to cross-link
from any language to any other, just to have "local" and "main"
images. But your point about French is a good one. I aleady do
accept links like "en:user:Fred", so "en:bild:Fred.jpg" isn't
much of a stretch.

I would generally prefer to encourage duplication; that way, the
whole German (or Spanish, etc.) wiki could be easily reproduced
from a database and image directory backup. But since images are
kind of "external" anyway, and the links properly define where to
get them, I might be convinced that inter-wiki image links are OK.
I would think the simplest way to do it is to have [[image:...]]
reference the English wiki, and [[bild:...]] the German one.

I'd have no objection to a batch process that added images
that are already referenced to the new site, and properly
updated the database. I wouldn't want to move images that

That was me; I was just debugging something and I wasn't
sure what they did so I commented them out to make sure
they weren't causing my problem. But if they work OK now,
they shoulud certainly be left in.
