I want to move the uploads of the Security Conference from Prolinebot to an own bot name, I'll still be using the same set of scripts as last year and the year before, see Commons:Bots/Requests/Prolinebot and the result at Category:Images from the Munich Security Conference. A first preview of the shell script can be found on the toolserver, I sill need to do some manual fixes since the source page is maintained manually and contains typos in the html syntax&markup causing some conversion errors. --Prolineserver (talk) 12:40, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

If bot code is almost same as in already approved bot, I think it'll be fine to approve new account. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:52, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
I agree with EugeneZelenko. That one worked, so I expect this one to work too. Multichill (talk) 16:17, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
It worked fine last time, so please go ahead. Category:47th Munich Security Conference is already created. --  Docu  at 07:27, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
Well, shout I wait for the bot flag? --Prolineserver (talk) 13:01, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
