Integration discussion — encouraging reuse by other non-MediaWiki sites.
- When reuse occurs, attribution etc does not occur properly.
- No programmatic way in MediaWiki to present the licensing information/attribution info. We can provide the description pages via the API
- Some way of resolving issues with moved or deleted images.
- Some images are deleted when they are replaced in another format.
- Issues with what license the file is under, GFDL requires the entire text of the GFDL in the license.
- What size image do we embed?
- Wikimedia UK has an on-hover text system for its blog for its blog .
- Example given: Dutch government (Kennisnet) allows students to make websites.
- The images at wdl have a nice share this button
- Reuse HTML/facebook/blog/forum code generator, that allows selection of an individual image, and generates appropriate HTML with proper attribution. We can only do this for appropriately licensed images.
- Perhaps already exists, but needs fixing.
- Distinguishing between reuse and sharing.
- Need to allow the user to select the size.
- Adds EXIF data.
- Note in the EXIF data that it came from commons, with all metadata (author, license, ...).
- Plugins for embedding media in popular CMS systems, which allow correct reuse of commons images (à la InstantCommons).
- WordPress, Drupal, WordPress, twitter, Moodle
- Just a plain Flickr-like "Share this" link to grab HTML to embed the object
- Some sort of tracking of reuse is a good idea.
- Extension of GlobalUsage? API module to grab trackbacks/etc
- Some sort of integration with GlobalUsage.
- Some sort of content-addressable scheme to resolve issues with renamed and modified images.
- Consider transferring the image, resolves maintenance issues with deleted/renamed/modified files.
- Develop statistics on hotlinked images (Referrer-header based).
- Include some sort of token in generated image URLS for reuse so we can track their usage. (do this for InstantCommons as well)
- Consider privacy.
- We need to make InstantCommons more accessible and advertised.
- Improve MediaWiki as a third-party reuser.
