This bot's approved task is to create and maintain galleries on Commons that record the use of files by other projects that are not supported by Special:GlobalUsage.

The bot operates automatically in daily and weekly batches, editing at a rate of up to 12 edits per minute.

The bot's code is available on GitHub.

The bot also operates on the OpenStreetMap Wiki.
