let's simplify this discussion, and assume that there just happens to be a
situation where images are allowed on a specific wiki, but not on commons -
the question is, should they be eligable to the contest. (I think the exact
discussion about the copyright status is a bit too complicated to have right
here right now - but is of course an important one to answer).
I think more opinions would be welcome, but my take would be: KISS - only
allow images through commons, that would keep the rules the simplest and the
tools probably as well. Also that would be the simplest for tourists who
might want to participate.
