Thanks a lot for your innovation  to ease upload of images to commons.
Thanks also for making it open source, as it can be inspiration for others
to improve it and/or build other tools, which can simiplify working with
wiki projects.

Based on my previous experience with commons, the category addition is a
pain point, even with current default tools on commons.  Categories are not
added as part of Upload. After few days, a bot will flag all those images
with the uncategorised warning.  Can you explore enhancing the tool to
support categorisation along with Upload?

I will try  your tool in couple of weeks and provide more  feedback.
