I do not found a way to get an image description from an secure repository.

You configure your Mediawiki to get all your images from an external repository
with $wgUseSharedUploads = true. And you want also fetch the image description
from the repository with $wgFetchCommonsDescriptions = true, which is closed
with "$wgGroupPermissions['*']['read'] = false;".

This works for repository, which are "open". When you restricted the access to
the repository, so that only a login user can read the images pages, you get
the image shown in the mediawiki, but no image description.

I follow the path and find out that in the HttpFunction.php works with curl,
but there is no possibility to hand over a username and a password, or?

How to get the image description, like this?
