            Bug ID: 58679
           Summary: extmetadata should return a link to the uploader's
                    user page
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All

This could solve multiple issues, actually:

1. We currently credit the latest uploader in the API return values. That's not
really sound given our community's practices about uploads. So we can use the
user page of the very first uploader instead of the last one.

2. I can't construct a User: page link from foreign DB repo info, because it
only returns a descBaseUrl value, which isn't helpful for constructing User:
links, only for File: links.
