            Bug ID: 62121
           Summary: Collection: credits of images should list only the
                    uploaders
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: REL1_22 branch
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: Collection
          Assignee: wikibugs-l@lists.wikimedia.org
          Reporter: q...@wikimedia.org
                CC: developm...@pediapress.com, marcin.cies...@gmail.com

The PDFs produced by the collection extension include a section with credits
and licenses of the images included.

EXPECTED

The names mentioned there correspond to the users that have uploaded that image
of any previous version in the same page.


ACTUALLY

In addition to the uploaders, all the editors of the page are included as well.
At the end it is impossible to know who uploaded the initial picture and
potential updates, and who simply added a translation or a template. This is a
mis-attribution.

You can test this here:

Fitxer:Can Manent Premià de Mar.jpg  (...)  Contribuïdors: Deosringas, Isidre
blanc, Pere prlpz, Vriullop

Fitxer:L'Amistat Premià de Mar.jpg  (...)  Contribuïdors: Deosringas, Isidre
blanc, Pere prlpz, Vriullop

In both cases Deosringas is the only uploader.
