Easy upload of Flickr photos to Commons

I hereby celebrate that we've merged Ankur Anand's (drecodeam's) Flickr
integration work into UploadWizard, and that administrators on Commons
can now upload photos directly from Flickr. See
https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=28731 .

Once we've shaken this out on the live site, I believe we'll be able to
open it up so all users will be able to upload multiple images at once
from Flickr to Wikimedia Commons. I can only imagine how great this
will be for Wiki Loves Monuments next year. :-) Thanks to Ankur, Ryan
Kaldari, Mark Holmquist, and everyone else who worked on this!

The Gerrit changeset that went through 26 patchsets (if at first you
don't succeed, try, try again): https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/12269/

Ankur worked on this as part of his 2012 Google Summer of Code project.
His HTML5 drag-and-drop support and geolocation metadata import
for UploadWizard, still need polish before we can merge them:
https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/q/owner:drecodeam+status:open,n,z Feel
free to help.

Also, our blog post about this year's GSoC students is now re-posted on
the Google open source blog:

Is there an API function, or a URL-parameter-based initialization? That
would life a whole lot easier for some of my tools!

Cheers,
Magnus

I think you wanthttps://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API:Upload#Uploading_from_URL

Note that it's limited to *.flickr.com and *.staticflickr.com on Wikimedia at the moment, and Wikimedia's proxy for it is broken with HTTPS URLs.

Nice feature! Why didn't he create a group [1] so we can assign the
right to users we trust? That's the common(s) way of handling these kind
of things. That way you can slowly expand the testing group without
opening it up for everyone.

Re: Easy upload of Flickr photos to Commons [In reply to]

The feature is currently assigned to the sysop and image-reviewer
groups. The image-reviewer group seems like a good fit since it is the
group tasked with reviewing Flickr images for copyright compliance on
Commons. Thus it would include people who know how to avoid
Flickrwashing. There is a page for requesting the image-reviewer rights
here:
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Image-reviewer

The actual user-right that is being utilized is upload-by-url. If the
Commons community wants to create a separate user group for that right,
I'm sure we could accommodate that.
