            Bug ID: 60587
           Summary: State benefit(s) of chunked uploading in preference
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: master
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized

Right now, the English text is, "Chunked uploads for files over 1MB in Upload
Wizard".  Besides the size being wrong according to
https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=59906 , it doesn't really give
the user any reason to check the box.

My understanding (see e.g.
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Maximum_file_size ) is that it
raises the upload size limit to 1000 MB.  That's a key user-visible change, and
should be mentioned (ideally using a parameter).

I think it's also meant to allow more reliable uploads (may not worth
mentioning at least while it's considered "experimental").
