Bug ID: 61317
           Summary: Add option to blank or edit image description while
                    reuploading a new image
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: Uploading
       Web browser: ---
   Mobile Platform: ---

Sometimes templates are used to flag an image needing replaced for whatever
reason, for the lazy people going through these flagged images and reuploading
then having to either blank or modify (depending on the presence of a license)
the image description page separately to remove the template is often too much

It would be prudent to modify the reupload portion of the upload feature to
replace the content of the image description page with the content contained in
the "File changes" box. You can even have the current contents inside the box
already and the uploader can change or modify it as needed then add a separate
(and optional) edit summary box for adding any applicable reason for reupload.

P.S. Keep in mind that this request was made in mind for any wiki community,
not just the WMF family of wikis.
