Hello,

Would you enable live images from Commons? That a great feature! http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgForeignFileRepos Thanks, Yann 15:02, 22 December 2008 (EST)

Yeah, just read about it the other day in Wikimedia's annual report - it's a great feature, and I'd love to see it around here too - although I'm not sure if we could bypass the CC vs GFDL issue, if the image is hosted on commons. Seems to be OK for the on-line version, but would it bring us at odds with republished off-line content? But in any case CC licenses seem to be slowly taking over on Commons - at least all the images I've seen recently have all been either CC or dual licensed. --Stefan (sertmann) Talk 17:02, 22 December 2008 (EST)
