Discussion

  • Not that important: Could your but use a more clear upload-summary? Currently it looks like it is using the upload form through index.php. API allows you to specify a separate edit-summary without gibberish.
  • Also not really important: If you have SVG output and MediaWiki renders this correctly, it's the preferred file format.
  • Even if not required, an English description and a separate category would be nice.
  • IMHO the Date=-field is missing. Just use the first day of the week.

Good points. Edit summary: Done, just had to figure out how :) SVG: rendered well! English description: done (not in tests). Date: Added. Category: added. And I made the source available. – Danmichaelo (δ) 17:11, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
That was fast. Thank you. No further objections. -- RE rillke questions? 20:27, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

If there is no any objection, I think task should be approved, but without bot status due low activity. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:35, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
