New licensing selector for file uploads

The new license box

After many pleas from new users to make the addition of copyright tags simpler, and from the experienced users forever trying to catch up with the number of untagged, unsourced images, Eloquence has announced on the Village Pump news section that Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason has added a new feature to MediaWiki: When users upload a file, they now have the option to choose the license they want to use from a dropdown box. The licenses available can be edited at MediaWiki:Licenses, as a structured list which lists licenses in the form template name|descriptive label.

Users are invited to help to complete this list to include the most important image copyright tags.
