Being able to keep a backup of all media under Category:Australia on
an Australian server would be beneficial, as there are occasional
calls for this in order to keep the Australian content 'safe'.  If
this was possible to backup only the works related to Australia, we
could also ask the national library ([[PANDORA]] project) if they
consider it within their scope to back it up.
