Description とある白い猫 2007-07-10 07:32:16 UTC
The upload form currently only displays the names of the available default license. The user will only be able to see the actual legal content of the licenses after uploading. This is a potential legal problem.

When user selects a license tag it should be displayed showing the actual content of the tag as well as link(s) to the official legal documents (such as the full text of the GFDL license for example).

Fixed in r24095.

Is this a good place for AJAX?  I'd imagine it's better to have all the licenses present beforehand and just hide and selectively reveal them with JavaScript.  This allows non-JS clients to potentially see them, even if they have to skim through all the others to find the right one, and it removes a potential lag in loading the license.

IMHO yeah...

Non-JS clients are more likely to be very-limited-ability items, in which case a link might be nicer.

Was this committed? 
Comment 5 Rob Church 2007-07-18 18:14:25 UTC
Yes, hence the "Fixed in r24095" message above...
Comment 6 とある白い猫 2007-07-18 20:27:26 UTC
I do not see a template when I choose an item on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Upload Iam confused. :/

Changes do not go live immediately.  You can see the current revision on [[Special:Version]].  If it is less than r24095, it stands to reason that a feature added in r24095 will not be present.
