            Bug ID: 62446
           Summary: Improve and better document process for uploading
                    large files
           Product: Wikimedia
           Version: wmf-deployment
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: General/Unknown

I looked at [[m:large file]], but couldn't figure out how to upload (or donate)
a large file to Wikimedia. We should definitely better document the process for
uploading a large file to Wikimedia wikis. For example, we should clarify when
it makes sense to ship data, when it makes sense to use the GLAM Wiki Toolset
extension, when it makes sense to use chunked uploading, when you'll need a
shell user, etc.

Ideally needing a shell user is a very limited case, but there seems to be an
increasing number of requests in Bugzilla lately. We should figure out whether
and how we can address this increase.
