Unfortunately, Special:Import usually does not work well for our
purposes because we'll always need to rename the page after making it,
it's yet another thing to do, it clutters the history page, etc.  In
the past I've done what Amir's done and did something like a link to
the workspace and a link to every author's userpage, but this got to
be too much work for too little gain. :-)

In my experience the best way is actually to just do "[[m:PAGENAME YOU
GOT IT FROM]]" in the summary and then anyone can reach the
workspace/workspace history if they want to make changes or if they
want to see who did what.
