Summary: Single block of citation text needed
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: General/Unknown

It seems to me that a bit of SINGLE, TEXT-BASED information needs to be
provided on the page with each WikiMedia item so that someone can EASILY CITE
everything relevant about the work (i.e., be able to just copy & paste a single
block of text to, e.g., paste into a field of the EXIF header of images that
are repurposed). For example, instead of the generic "I, the copyright
holder...this work...", it should say "I, John Doe (m...@email.address), the
copyright holder of the work represented at, on 20
January 2010 hereby release it into the public domain. This applies worldwide.
In case this is not legally possible, I grant any entity the right to use this
work for any purpose, without any conditions, unless such conditions are
required by law."

At this point (unless I'm missing something [in which case, please, someone,
fill me in!), it's very cumbersome to try to collect all the info in order to
adequately cite an image(/etc.)--and it seems that this should not be the case.

Any chance this could be addressed...????
