Hi Olaf,

It turns out that only 10 images have already been transferred from Flickr,
and the rest isn't (yet) on Commons. So I figured that we'll proceed with
the upload as planned, omit the 10 that are already on Commons, and then
edit their metadata manually (and let the original uploader know why we're
doing that).

This seems like the easiest solution - although a Python script like that
would surely be a useful thing to have, not just for this case... :)

Best,
