continuing my work, and I will upload PDF files to Wikimedia

Wikimedia Commons is already full of posters and brochures in PDF,
where the editable source files are unavailable. That is sad.
Yes, sad. I think everysone agrees. But not trivial to fix. So, help with fixing
it, or wait for someone else to fix it. Complaining doesn't help. Such is the
nature of open source projects.
There are other repository for free culture, www.archiver.org
could be another option for people. Posting the PDF in Wikipedia, and
the ODT or archive.org
. Bonus points adding a comment to the WP page
of the pdf with a link to the archive.org
This is another way to pimp free culture. Wikipedia is popular, widly
popular, sharing that popularity with another good agents can result
on good things. For hence, one day the Wikipedia will die. One basket,
all eggs. A bus can hit the wikipedia.
