  • First test uploads follow step by step until someone opposes. -- RE rillke questions? 22:30, 28 March 2012 (UTC)
    Uploads themselves looks OK. I think will be doof idea to include some internationalization to template for author, place of publication, permission and original caption fields. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:49, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
    • Thanks. Will look for i18n templates for the author. Also contacted OTRS; they should document the fact that the "photographer" released the work into GFDL. "doof" confused me first... is this an English word? I've absolutely no clue... Sorry. -- RE rillke questions? 15:11, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
      • Argh! book is using {{City}}..., original caption fields - it's the plant's name in "latin", the word "original caption" uses a template already, don't know what i should i18n there.
      • Anything remaining opposing a bot-flag? -- RE rillke questions? 11:39, 30 March 2012 (UTC)
        Not from my side, but I'm not alone in Universe :-) --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:44, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

If there no objections, I think bot status should be granted. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:40, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
