Discussion[edit]

Also see Commons:Bots/Work_requests#list_of_works. I don't think a bot is the right way to do this. I don't know if this is useful at all, but if it is, the toolserver is probably the right place to build an interface for this. Multichill (talk) 20:31, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

I'd have prefered an extension too, but a toolserver solution might be just as good. Let's see what it offers.  Docu  at 05:07, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
Closed, toolserver solution. --Schlurcher (talk) 18:25, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
Somehow the toolserver solution is stuck. Let's keep this open in the meantime. --  Docu  at 19:02, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

Any new status on this or did you want to hold it open (pending) a bit longer? ++Lar: t/c 17:36, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

 Not done as stale. –Juliancolton | Talk 11:49, 9 April 2011 (UTC)
