Introduce "ImportImages" to ImportDump
Open, LowPublic

Description

MSUpload can't do everything so it would be nice to be able to import a larger (even if not larger than 250MB for now) archive of images.

This would mean creating a special page called "Special:ImportImages" and allowing users to upload 7z/tar.gz/zip files of images and then a script command like with ImportDump (including unzip depending on which type of archive is used).

I should also add that this would benefit from the "UploadBase::detectVirus" function that ImportDump uses.

Event Timeline

Reception123 created this task.

I think importimages will be introduced to Special:RequestImport directly not a seperate special page, ImportDump is also in the process of being renamed to better accommodate this. Also probably will add a hook or something to support RestoreManageWikiBackups with it also.
