mediawiki:sharedupload is supposed to contain a message with a link to commons
on wikimedia wikis.
it does not do so on at least the following wikipedias
id (has a non-default message but no link to commons)
there are probablly others i haven't noticed as well
it would seem sensible to replace the default message with a
non-internationalised message about commons on all wikis where it hasn't been
changed already (with a bot or database query) and let the individual wikis
translate it in thier own time.
imo an untranslated message attributing the images to commons is much better
than no link to commons at all.
Language file contain a default:
'sharedupload' => 'This file is a shared upload and may be used by other projects.',
I have ran rebuildMessages --update on all wikis some days ago, so all wikis
should have that message now.
read the bug report it said an appropriate message, that one whilst an ok
default for the distributed mediawiki certainly isn't appropriate for mediawiki
now the auto inclusion of page content from commons mitigates this to some
extent but there is still afaict no way to get to the image history or the page
history of the description unless the admins of the local wiki edit
I see, but this is not a problem that could be solved by changing the message only,
because the software does not give the Commons’ page description URL. A change in
ImagePage.php is required, so I am creating a new, more general, bug report, and
marking this bug as a duplicate of that.
