MIDI files for copyright works

Hi Claude. I'm back on CPDL after finishing my university exams on Wednesday. I see you've been busy while I've been away! I just wanted to ask you about the MIDI files that you've been creating, specifically for works contributed to CPDL by living composers. I noticed you added a MIDI file for Cantate Domino (Tim Blickhan). Did you contact Tim to get his consent to do this? I note that at the bottom of the PDF, Tim has not released this work under a free license, simply stating "Copyright © 2000 by Charles Timothy Blickhan".

PS. This talk page is getting rather long - you should archive it, or I'd be happy to help you to do this if you're not sure how. --Bobnotts talk 12:07, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

Hi, Bob. I'm sure you'll be successful in your studies. And thanks for your help. I had in mind that the MIDI files directly created from the PDF files should follow the copyright status of the latter. I thought also that if any editor/composer wants to show the score, he also wants that it can be heared. - About this page, yes, could you explain me about what to do? Claude 13:09, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
Created the 'Archive' page, cutted and pasted all the threads except two. Claude 14:01, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
"I had in mind that the MIDI files directly created from the PDF files should follow the copyright status of the latter."
I'm afraid that whilst your intentions are good, you have not sought the copyright holder's permission to adapt their work in this way. This consent cannot be assumed. As such, I have deleted the MIDI files you uploaded for this composer's works and removed the links. If you wish to seek Tim Blickhan's permission to publish an adaptation of his work, and he consents to this, of course I have no problem with your doing so.
I'm glad you worked out the archiving process. --Bobnotts talk 17:28, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

Pages created automatically using templates

Hi Claude, if you want to add text/translations to this page, please note that it's a new experiment about the automatic creation of pages using templates. Text and translations for such a page should go into the associated text sub-page, rather than on the page itself. We may even create a wiki namespace for text/translations, so that all text/translations may have their own logical space for easier management in the future. As you are by far the most generous contributor for text/translations, your opinion on this matter would be greatly appreciated! Max a.k.a. Choralia 16:12, 6 February 2010 (UTC).

It does work well: someone can now see the text at the bottom of the work's page. Thanks. But when someone click on 'Modify' on the line of 'Text and translations', it opens the protected CPDL template instead of the new secondary page which contains the text, to modify it, for example. Additionnally, the new pages without text do not appear when you list those that have the NoText template inside. Claude 16:58, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
If a namespace for CPDLtext is created, new pages without text would be evident by simply monitoring the empty pages of such a namespace. The NoText template may become unnecessary. This page is another example where I didn't add the NoText template, so you may add any text by just clicking the red link at the bottom of the page. I have to find a similar way to easily reach the CPDLtext page after the first edit, as at the moment it's not obvious. Max a.k.a. Choralia 10:12, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
I've easily added the text the way you mentioned. Thanks. Incidentally, did you see what happens on the 'Instruments' line of the work page? Claude 14:15, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

MIDI files

Hi Claude,

yes, I’ve often been lazy in not providing MIDI or source files along with typesets; mea culpa. However, if you are providing MIDI files to go along with scores, might I request in my own case that you don’t include the initials PML? As I tend to use this on virtually all of my scores as an identifier of the editor, a downloader would obtain a false impression from the name of the MIDI file to Das ist je gewißlich wahr (Schütz) that it was generated from my source file.

Regards, Philip LeggeΦ talk @ mail 22:16, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Hi, Philip, I understand that creating a new MIDI from the PDF file could generate errors and is a new edition. So your initials shouldn't stay in the file name. In all other cases, file names don't include personal informations and I try to keep the name of the MIDI file similar to the PDF one. Thank you for your particularly excellent contributions. Regards, Claude 08:15, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

missing page

Bonjour Claude. I uploaded a new edition to this page recently. It shows the "new score" template, yet it doesn't appear in the score list on the main page. Any reason why this happens? Cache issue, perhaps? Cordialement, joachim 16:45, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

Hi, Joachim, I saw your numerous and excellent publications. Thanks. I see the 'Swing low, sweet chariot' page on the Main page, under February, the 19th. The only delay of publication I know is on www1 and the cloning is during the night. Please check if the page URL begins with (you have to login on this site, not on the two others). To refresh dynamically the main page, you can add '&action=purge' at the end. So, try that. Off the topic: what are the definite articles in Dutch that we should reject for sorting our works' titles (like Le, La, Les, L' in French)? Mes amitiés. - Claude 17:15, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
Merci, Claude. Probably due to cache issues, then. Definite articles in Dutch are de (male/female) and het (neutral). Plural nouns always take de. Likewise, there is only one singular indefinite article, een. Regards, joachim 18:42, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

Dimitry Bortniansky

Bonjour Claude. I've recently had a look at Bortniansky's composer page, which is, quite frankly, a mess. I introduced a couple of redirects, renaming pages, but the score links on the composer page just won't budge. Any idea why this is the case? Or should I adjust them manually? Thanks for any hints. Cordialement, joachim 18:00, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Hi, Joachim. I've seen all your work during all the day. Congrats and many thanks. All the changes about Bortniansky are effective on his composer's page and, when I click on any icon, that works as usual. I think only about the site you are connected to. Check if it's ever www, not www2 or other, because changes on those sites will be effective only tomorrow. I want to help you much more but can't see the problem. Perhaps you should contact Carlos either. Claude 18:36, 10 April 2010 (UTC)
Hi Claude, thanks for that. I'm effectively working from www. The problem is not the redirects, the pages display correctly, as you noticed. The problem is that the composer page still has the 'old' titles. This page, for instance, is still labelled Canon of supplication... on the composer page. I thought I had missed some kind of redirect instruction. Thanks anyway. joachim 18:40, 10 April 2010 (UTC)
This is the 'normal' situation: If someone renames a work page, a redirect link is created from the old to the new one. But the composer page isn't changed because it isn't a dynamically created page. We have to change on it the line of the work manually (twice). Other pages are automatically changed: the works of the month' page, the most seen works' page, etc, because those pages are just dynamic listings. A composer's page has more informations than a listing. Try to see from the left column 'Linked pages' when you see the old page you've just renamed. Hope this helps. Claude 21:12, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Broken template

Hi Claude, I noticed that you added the template 'Broken' to a couple of pages, but I believe that this template is meant to be applied for broken external links only. Local links are supposed to be fixed by ourselves, and in this case, as the files are indeed missing from CPDL, I removed those links, ok? Next time you find this situation, please report at the admins' IT forum. Thanks! —Carlos Email.gif 04:42, 25 May 2010 (UTC)

More MIDI files - have you sought permission?

Hi Claude. I've just noticed that you have created a MIDI file for Mass for Five Voices (Jeffrey Quick) which seems to be in contravention of the Creative Commons license that it has been licensed under. There are other works by the same composer which are similarly licensed for which you have created MIDI files. Do you have permission from the composer to do this? I refer to our discussion above under the "MIDI files for copyright works" title. --Bobnotts talk 15:46, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

No, Bob, I haven't sought permission. If you think it's better to delete the files, please do it. I apologize and will try to avoid that in the future. Claude 22:46, 26 June 2010 (UTC)
To be honest, Claude, I'd like you to remove the files and the links. I don't really have the time to do so myself. I don't believe that you're adding these files in bad faith but I have raised this issue before. Since you honestly admit that you have not sought the composer's permission and you are an administrator here, I would expect you to remedy the situation yourself. I don't think I'm being unreasonable in this request, but if you disagree, I'll be happy to hear your thoughts. --Bobnotts talk 19:55, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
No problem, Bob. I reverted the page and deleted the file. I just wanted to say that it is not so easy to know among many license types which licenses (derivative/non-derivative) suppose someone may or not generate a MID file from the PDF and/or export a MID file from a music editor file. If you think of others infringements, just let me know the pages concerned. Claude 20:51, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
Thank you, Claude. Unfortunately, this does of course include the rest of the score pages linked to from Jeffrey Quick. Could you go through those as well, please? I certainly will let you know of other pages where this is the case but it remains your responsibility to adequately investigate the license in question. With regards to the Creative Commons licenses, these are even available in French so you can read in your mother tongue if you wish. You will find the links at the top of the Creative Commons pages. --Bobnotts talk 18:13, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

Deleting pages

Hi Claude. I've just checked through a number of redirects that you have recently deleted and I've had to take the time to restore some 16 redirects which were deleted where there are still non-dynamic pages linking to them. By deleting these redirects, you introduced at least 16 broken links into the wiki. Before deleting any page or file, please check the "what links here" option under the toolbox to see if the links have been corrected. If not, feel free to correct them and delete the redirect if appropriate. However, if you're not sure, please simply do not delete any page or file. Instead mark it for deletion and someone can check it for you. Or just leave it. Redirects hardly take up any space on the server at all so there's not really much benefit in deleting them anyway. Thanks --Bobnotts talk 21:53, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Sorry for that, Bob, but be sure I checked "what links here" each time. Sometimes I forgot a part of the modification (you know it's twice work each: name of the page to link, name of the link itself), sometimes I didn't found today the persistent link you mentioned yesterday and, above all, I thought all pages beginning with 'Choralwiki:' were dynamic pages, which is not the case. I understand that letting a few superfluous redirect pages is not important, but I work on hundreds of them. Now, I will continue the work, checking twice the persistent links, before and after modifications. Claude 08:43, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for checking again but I'm afraid you're still missing some links. Please check the following pages once again which I have just re-restored:
--Bobnotts talk 09:58, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
I've just deleted these five superfluous redirects, after having made changes to the pages that linked to. But I'm no more willing to correct all these typos. :-( Claude 12:08, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
Another tip, Claude: when you delete a redirect, please do check if there is also a talk page redirect. These are easy to catch: when deleting a redirect, just look at the discussion tab to see if it has a red or blue link. See these pages for example:
I used to think that redirects were a bad thing to keep, but now I tend to agree with Rob that there's not really much benefit in deleting them. I watched how the admins work at IMSLP some time ago and they never delete any redirects, even when a page title is corrected 4-5 times in a row. But they do have an advantage, because their composer pages list works dynamically and don't need maintenance when a work is renamed. Thanks! —Carlos Email.gif 12:26, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
Hi, Carlos. Do you mean that an old, erroneously named talk page, becaming a redirection to the good one, cannot be deleted because the new work's page keeps a link to the old erroneous talk page? Anyway, I don't see how to delete the link from the new work's page to the old, erroneously titled talk page. So, it seems definitely better to "let superfluous redirect flourish" ;-) Claude 12:56, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
Hi Claude. That's not what I meant, the talk page should be moved to the new title together with the work page, as you've been doing. I was just trying to say that, when deleting the redirect that was left behind, the redirect of its related talk page ought to be deleted too. To better exemplify, please open this page As Torrents in Summer (Edward Elgar); it was a redirect that was deleted, but notice that the discussion tab is still in blue; this should be deleted too. :) —Carlos Email.gif 13:20, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
The page you mention is now deleted. The corresponding talk page isn't. Before deleting it (the talk page) I check "what links here" and see that the new work's page keeps a link to it (the old talk page). I haven't been able to found where to do the necessary modification. Claude 13:50, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
Oh I see, this is because the ScoreError template was keeping a kind of "memory" of the old name. To fix this I just edited the page and saved it again without any change. Too much trouble for just a redirect, huh? :) —Carlos Email.gif 15:11, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
Yes, Carlos, that does it. Thanks. And yes, it's too much trouble for just a redirect. ;-) Claude 20:16, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Traduction de la page principale

Bonjour Claude. Je n'ai pas eu le temps récemment d'observer tout ce qui s'est passé sur la page principale, mais il me semble qu'il faudrait traduire plusieurs éléments (nouveaux) en néerlandais, puisque la page néerlandophone contient des liens rouges. Est-ce que tu saurais m'indiquer de quels textes il s'agit, et où je peux trouver la version originale anglaise? Cordialement, joachim 16:15, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Bonjour, Joachim. J'espère que tout va bien pour toi. Pour la langue de la page d'accueil, c'est difficile pour moi aussi. Si je prends l'exemple de la page ChoralWiki:SearchSection/nl, j'ai pris celle en italien (ChoralWiki:SearchSection/it), que Max venait de réaliser : copié tout le contenu de la page italienne puis cliqué sur le lien rouge vers ChoralWiki:SearchSection/fr, collé tout et remplacé tout ce qui était en italien par du français. J'ai signalé, sur le forum ici que tout n'était pas traduit, mais pas de solution pour l'instant. -- Par ailleurs, Joachim, je suis toujours demandeur que tu puisses couper-coller les textes en Church Slavonic des partitions sur les pages des œuvres qui sont listées . Merci d'avance de ce que tu pourras faire. Claude 17:53, 22 November 2010 (UTC)
Bonjour Joachim (et Claude). Joachim, if you can wait for a couple of hours, I could create the necessary pages for you to translate. Regards, —Carlos Email.gif 20:36, 22 November 2010 (UTC)
Joachim, pourriez-vous traduire les pages suivantes, s'il vous plaît? (les textes à la droite seulement) : ChoralWiki:TopMatter/nl, ChoralWiki:SearchSection/nl, ChoralWiki:BrowseSection/nl, ChoralWiki:ComposerSection/nl. Merci! —Carlos Email.gif 03:32, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
Hi guys, Dutch translations done. Thanks for stepping in, Carlos. Claude, as far as the Church Slavonic is concerned, I'm aware of the work in that field. The problem is three-fold. First, most of them come from the site of the late Alexander Ledkovsky and are only available in .pdf, which means I have to copy the texts by hand or search the web till the cows come home for a public domain version. Secondly, most of the pages have the wrong title, named as they are after the genre (Kondak, Hymn, Canon,...) or Feast (Dormition, Christmas, etc...), whereas the cpdl house style is title=text. Adding texts would imho therefore also mean re-directing all the pages. Perhaps the Christmas holiday will leave me with a few 35-hour days to do all that? I'll keep an eye out for a solution. Cordialement, joachim 17:42, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
Oh, I understand very well what you mean, Joachim. I like the cows "coming home". Anyway, thanks for all the work done, and well done. As for Carlos. Claude 17:51, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Broken links

Please use the template {{broken}} in the future for instances such as this so that they are flagged up correctly. Thanks --Bobnotts talk 22:29, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Ok, Bob, but in this case the link to the external site isn't technically broken. BTW, I searched a score for this work for the file #7486. The historic of the page shows "edition 7486 moved here", by you. As I cannot find this title on the Solovoces site, I wanted to know from where this edition was taken. I wish you all the best. Claude —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Claude T (talkcontribs) on 09:06, 30 November 2010.
Thanks for your reply. The PDF of "In nets of golden wires" is now available on the external site (I emailed Laura Conrad).
I would have moved the "In monte Oliveti" edition just so that it was on the same wiki page as the other entry for the same work. Unfortunately, you're right, it doesn't seem to be available on the external site any more. Perhaps it was withdrawn. --Bobnotts talk 10:06, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

NewWork template

Hi Claude!

I noticed that you started removing the NewWork template from old editions. I particularly think it should not be removed even after the 90 days period is over, because the posting date is often different from the submission date, and by removing the template you also remove this information. Currently we only use the posting date to list a work on the Main page, but in the future it could be useful to have also a complete list of editions by posting date, on a par with the list by submission date. An An alternative could be to remove the template only when both dates are identical. What do you think? Regards, —Carlos Email.gif 05:31, 2 February 2011 (CST)

Well, Ok for removing the template only when both dates are identical, from now. There were 5555 pages involved four days ago, 5060 are unchanged at this time. I can check my contribs for rolling back when dates were different among the 495 pages done. Could it be possible to imagine the automatic removing of the template after 90 days when the dates are the same? Claude 05:58, 2 February 2011 (CST)
Wow, I didn't know you had advanced that much in the task! With respect to your last question, that could be quite complex, especially in pages with more than one edition: the script would not know for sure to which of the editions the NewWork template relates. But this template is quite low in resource consumption, if that's what prompted you to remove it. —Carlos Email.gif 06:13, 2 February 2011 (CST)
About resource consumption, my query is about the 'IsNew' template but shows pages with 'NewWork' template, so I may think there is a link between them. And what about the 'IsRecent' template? Just to let you know: upon the first twenty changes checked, all included the same dates for submitting and posting. Claude 07:10, 2 February 2011 (CST)
Claude, I didn't know you were doing this manually. Daunting task!! Is this not automatable with a script or a bot?? -Paul Marchesa 01:57, 10 February 2011 (CST)
Yes, Paul, not even a beast could do that... except Claude ;-)) I went for the first time to see what DotNetWikiBot could do for me. But seeing the exception above (don't delete the NewWork template if the date of edition is different), doing it manually will be achieved before I learn to automatically correct editions without any error. Thank you for worrying. Claude 02:05, 10 February 2011 (CST)
I'm most impressed by your energy! Since my watch list is so long, though, could I please ask the favor of checking the "minor edit" box for such uncontroversial changes? Richard Mix 20:31, 24 February 2011 (CST)
Ok, sure ;-) Claude 02:36, 25 February 2011 (CST)


Joyeux anniversaire à vous, mon cher ami! :) —Carlos Email.gif 21:46, 2 February 2011 (CST)

May I add my own wishes for a Happy Birthday, dear friend! :) – Chucktalk Giffen 00:32, 3 February 2011 (CST)

New Score

Hi Claude, I, Luc Jakobs, added a new score ( In Flanders Fields) to my page but it isn't listed on the Main page of Choralwiki with the new scores. Did I do something wrong? with kind regards, Luc Jakobs

Hi Luc, your page is already fixed, a template (NewWork) was missing from it. Claude, I hope you won't mind my jumping in. :) Regards, —Carlos Email.gif 12:43, 11 June 2011 (CDT)
Hi, Luc, Thank you for all your contributions. And, Carlos, thanks for jumping in: I'm far from home these three days and, anyway, I wouldn't have found the solution. Claude 14:23, 11 June 2011 (CDT)


Hi Claude,

It was good of you to link Magnificat (Francesco Cavalli) to the text page Magnificat. I just linked vice-versa, but (as has been pointed out to me) if the same person remembers to add works to the text page things are less likely to fall through the cracks! All the best, Richard Mix 15:02, 16 June 2011 (CDT)

Well, Richard, thank you for having repaired my mistake. I remember one of the two templates (LnkTxt or LinkText) was working as an automatic 'vice-versa' action. But it seems it's not the template I used (we haven't the choice between both: in some cases we must use LinkText, in others we can only use LnkTxt). I hope we will have soon a template that fills this point (adding automatically the composer to the list of works with the same text) for any page where we add the 'link the text' template. Claude 15:32, 16 June 2011 (CDT)

Brian Russell's editions

Hi Claude. Great to see you clearing out the Brian Russell links to update. Unfortunately I never got round to finishing the job myself. Keep up the good work! --Bobnotts talk 06:42, 14 August 2011 (CDT)

Thank you, Bob. I'll get some vacation during five days from tomorrow and will achieve this task a bit later. Anyway, I saw some works pages with bad links that I can't update (before the letter U in the alphabetical list). On the other hand, I saw on the 'brianrussell' branch of the site some pieces that seem having no edition on the corresponding pages on CPDL, particularly 21 pieces under Lagrime di San Pietro by Orlando di Lasso/Roland de Lassus. I appreciate your help. Claude 08:06, 14 August 2011 (CDT)

Missing file

Bonjour Claude. Je viens de télécharger des nouvelles versions de cette partition, mais pour une raison que j'ignore, je n'arrive pas à faire apparaître le fichier pdf. Pourrais-tu jeter un coup d'oeuil? Merci d'avance. joachim

Bonjour à vous deux! Joachim, the problem with the pdf was not related to your current version update, but with a typo in the link that sneaked in when that page was created. Salut, —Carlos Email.gif 07:16, 17 September 2011 (CDT)
Thank you, both. - Claude 15:18, 17 September 2011 (CDT)

Duplicating CPDL catalogue numbers

Claude, your edit here duplicated a CPDL number which is now in use on Vox in Rama (Jean Crespel). FYI, I've added a cleanup note on the Jakobs page. --Bobnotts talk 09:22, 10 January 2012 (CST)

Thanks, Bob. Found another one. Claude 09:34, 10 January 2012 (CST)

Le content est riche

Hi Claude! Could you please proof-read the translation I posted on Le content est riche? The phrase "A cœur joyeux liberté monde" is still vague to me, something seems to be missing. Also, could the meaning of "Et à tous deuil clore les yeux" be "and to all deceased close their eyes"? Merci! —Carlos Email.gif 14:29, 4 February 2012 (CST)

I googleized a little and found there is no text error comparing to that score. "Liberté monde" doesn't take sense for me as "Freedom world". There is a verb "monder" but with no more sense for me here. I think it could be a report error from the first report like "mande" (demands, commands) instead of "monde". Apart from that,the Dalitz' score wears "deux" (two, both) instead of "deuil" (mourning). If someone has another idea... Claude 15:42, 4 February 2012 (CST)

Brian Russell

Hi Claude! We have a new problem with Russell's editions: the Website template was being used to link to his pages only; now that you have run replacetext in order to apply it to the files as well, we are in a situation where either the link to his page is broken, or the link to the PDFs (depending on how we set Website):

As an example, check the links of Singing alone (Thomas Morley) as they were here and now. I changed Website so that the PDFs are accessible, but you may revert my change to see what happens. This is happening because the PDFs are found only inside /wiki/images/. I don't remember why it was decided to do it this way. We can talk to Max and ask him if all Brian's files could be moved to a single place, together with his HTML files. Salut, —Carlos Email.gif 12:07, 20 May 2012 (CDT)

Hi, Carlos. I don't know if we have the same informations on that problem. I remember the following: all BR links were external 'net' links, by "nationality" of composer, linking to MID and NWC files (No PDF at that time). Then all the external tree was put at Then Bob created a 'BR_links_to_update' template to tag the 650 pages and began to update 6 or 7 pages. I generated a PDF from each NWC file and uploaded it (automatically on Images, for sure, with an automatic link to SERVER, etc) and updated the two other files (MID and NWC) of each page with internal links (to Lastly a user wrote on the forums that he couldn't see the files. Max found that all the links were correctly seen on the contrib site but couldn't be accessed from the others sites. So he changed the SERVER path into a 'website' path that works for all (but this new 'website' template is the only one that points to an internal group of files - on the same machine but not inside the Wiki, I guess -). Today I changed some SERVER path into 'website' ones like Max did some time ago (don't know why these 50 pages didn't follow the 600 others but it happens often, you know. It seemed to me Max's conversion involved 600 links but didn't work for 50 others, those I changed today. Perhaps I'm wrong. What I'm sure is that I made a mistake today when I replaced the SERVER string by "Russell/" instead of "Russell}}" at the end. I corrected the problem less than half an hour after. During this quarter of hour, the links were broken, my fault. But now I don't see the problem you are speaking above. ;-) - Claude 14:13, 20 May 2012 (CDT)
Hi Claude, I reverted the changes I had made to Website so you can see the problem. Now please click on the link above ("Singing alone") and try to open each of the four links. What happens? —Carlos Email.gif 15:07, 20 May 2012 (CDT)
You're right: the 573.pdf is not reachable. Why is it not with 574 and others? I have no idea. Max should be of precious help.Claude 15:26, 20 May 2012 (CDT)
That's it! And if we change Website to include /wiki/images/, the PDF becomes accessible but then the {net} link gets broken. :/ It seems that the .mid and .nwc files are duplicated but not the pdfs. We need to find a way to reunite them in a single place. Let me see if I can do it myself, otherwise I'll ask for Max's help. —Carlos Email.gif 15:42, 20 May 2012 (CDT)
Many thanks for your help. It's late here. I'm gonna sleep. - Claude 15:58, 20 May 2012 (CDT)
It's late here and I'm tired too. Let's look into it tomorrow. Max a.k.a. Choralia 17:19, 20 May 2012 (CDT)
Hello guys, I think the problem is solved: I copied all pdf files from /wiki/images/brianrussell to /brianrussell. Max, may we now delete the directory under /images, as it's just a duplicate? —Carlos Email.gif 22:22, 20 May 2012 (CDT)
Carlos, please check The original idea was the opposite, i.e., copying any pdf files made by Brian Russell from /brianrussell to /wiki/images/brianrussell, so as to overwrite the set of pdf files that I created automatically from Brian's NWC files. I'm afraid that you have overwritten Brian's files with my files instead... Max a.k.a. Choralia 15:21, 21 May 2012 (CDT)

Max, I thought Brian had no PDFs of his own. Fortunately the old Contributor site worked as a backup and I was able to recover those 64 PDFs from there. The PDFs generated by you are all grouped inside a zip file under /wiki/images/brianrussell. —Carlos Email.gif 15:45, 21 May 2012 (CDT)

I also had a backup on my own, so there wouldn't be any problem anyway. However, the original reason to put my pdf files into a separate folder under /wiki/images/brianrussell was to keep Brian's website as it was when he passed away, as a memorial and sign of respect for his contributions to CPDL.

Oh, I see... but I'm afraid it won't be possible anymore (at least, not without some extra work): after the ReplaceTexts recently run, all files and {net} links (Russell's html pages) now point to a single directory (via template Website). —Carlos Email.gif 23:39, 21 May 2012 (CDT)
