  • The contribs will be swamped by the existing approved job, but the test uploads for this request can be found here: Category:Photographic material from the Queensland State Archives. They were uploaded in numerical order, and all the issues were sorted out for numbers ~15-30. --99of9 (talk) 11:53, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
    I think will be good idea to use language tags for Permission and non-standard fields with text.
    Looks like better categorization is possible. If not automatically, may be dedicated category should be used where interested users could find a task to do?

    ✓ Done Ok, I've put the language tags in (see id numbers 31-40). I think these are best categorized by hand. I expect to enlist the Wikimedia Australia community. I guess the category Category:Photographic material from the Queensland State Archives will be fairly dedicated to these for a while, because I created it especially for this batch, but just as a precaution, I've also now put them in Category:QSA media uploaded by User:99of9, and future uploads will go there. --99of9 (talk) 10:38, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
    Looks OK for me. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:48, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Indeed. I think it should be approved. I trust the operator examining the copyright status very closely before. And anything else could be corrected later, if problems arise. -- Rillke(q?) 17:57, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

If there are no objections, I think task should be approved. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:32, 24 March 2013 (UTC)
