Description Duncan Harris 2005-06-23 23:32:46 UTC
There are currently blocks on what you can and can't upload.  Anons can't upload 
anyting, clearly to stop them uploading all sorts of crap.  Logged in users and 
admins can upload any legitimate file (e.g. you can upload jpg, gif, png, ogg), but 
not (say) a source file of a diagram created in dia, which we might want to update 

Since however we have admins who are trusted, can it be arranged so that admins can 
upload any file?  We can then arrange a system where users who aren't admins can then 
have their work checked before being uploaded.  I don't think that logged in users 
ought to able to do this because of the security implications, etc, but surely admins 
are trusted?

Note that this is similar to admins being able to put arbitrary JavaScript into
the UI which we've been trying to eliminate.

Note also that this will become largely irrelevant when 1.5 rolls out, see bug 898:
