--- Comment #2 from Tisza Gergő <gti...@wikimedia.org> ---
Apparently this is not so easy as it seems: the imageinfo API has a revision
limit parameter (iilimit) which can be used to get information about the
uploader of the first revision, but there is no way to start from the earliest
revision, so we would have to start from the first. Most information would be
duplicated for each revision (especially metadata can be huge), making this
very inefficient: one either has to make an API call for most image information
and a separate one for the first uploader, or get everything for every
revision, possibly getting dozens of kilobytes of text in response.

The first uploader seems like an obvious thing to look for, we should
incorporate easy access to it into one of the APIs (maybe CommonsMetadata,
which is somewhat of a catch-all already).
