Description John Mark Vandenberg 2007-12-27 09:18:14 UTC
There are two classes of imports that occur rather often to justify the ability to import from Commons to
1) Image pages on commons that consist of text often have the full text transcribed there, and retaining the contribution history is useful even though the work is PD.  The "Image:" page would be imported to the "Page:" namespace on wikisource
2) PD templates on commons are usually applicable for en.WS as-is or with a little tweaking.

'enwikisource' => array('w', 'OldWikisource', 'b', 'commons'),
