Description Daniel Kinzler 2005-03-27 16:19:57 UTC
The image i linked to has no information associated with it - not only is the
description page missing, it has also no upload-versions, etc. The image does
not seem to exist for the database, but is found on the harddrive (or something
like that). I could not find the image in the deletion log, and no deleted
versions are displayed. Something is wrong here, but i'm not sure what. Oh, and
no, the image is not included from the commons.

I'm labeling this as "major" because it is possible that information-los is
caused by a bug / replication problem.

The image doesn't show in the upload log, either:

(The file is dated October 17, 2004.)

There was an old bug in which the file upload information and image 
page wouldn't be recorded until the uploader clicked the confirmation 
button after receiving a 'warning' (eg about filename normalization, large 
size, etc). But the file would still be left there unless they clicked the 
'cancel' button. This file seems consistent with that: file is present, but no 
recorded log entry, image table entry, or description page.

That bug was fixed a while ago -- such files are moved to a temporary 
directory instead of the main download area pending confirmation -- so 
I'm marking this bug FIXED.

Either delete the image, or re-add the information.
