Description Gerard Meijsssen 2005-06-26 12:28:06 UTC
With 1.5 "Destination filename:" was added. This parses the filename out of the
selected file. This needs to be done whenever a new file is selected, not only
when it is blank.

When you upload hundreds / thousands of pronunciations this means a lot of extra
time.. For me it is a major amount of time.

Thanks,

I hope you know that scripts can be used for this (they may need to be updated
for 1.5 though). --Dori
Comment 2 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2005-06-27 00:52:27 UTC
It might be good to keep the manually set name, this way users
can easily upload a sequence of file with a close name.

For example, you have:
 MyHollydayPic.png
 MeWithAshar.png
 CloseFriend.png
 MagicChurch.png

But you want to upload them as:
 Hollyday2005March-01.png
 Hollyday2005March-02.png
 Hollyday2005March-03.png
 Hollyday2005March-04.png

If the "destination filename" field is kept (as it is now) one can
easily change the trailing number.
Comment 3 Gerard Meijsssen 2005-06-27 05:38:05 UTC
If you think it a good idea have a tick box that allows you to NOT update the
name in the "destination file name". The argument why you want to keep the name
is as good as the request to change the name.

Thanks,

Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2005-08-11 10:26:23 UTC
Fixed in HEAD and REL1_5.

I don't think the case for not setting the filename on selection is very strong. 
Perhaps it could be thought about as an enhancement, but the primary use case 
doesn't seem to support it, and the behavior was confusing and not self-
consistent (eg, it's not clear why it would set the filename sometimes but not 
other times).
Comment 6 Brion Vibber 2005-08-13 23:37:27 UTC
Bug 3131 is a side-effect of this fix.
