I remember there was an Isrealis project of collecting old photos and
then upload them to Commons via local server. Maybe they can share
some code with you?

By the way - such a server side collecting photo software would be
usefull not only for WLM but also in many other cases - for example
during cooperation with GLAM Institutions.

Maybe you will find interesting a Vicunia uploader:


It is probably still too sophisticated - but it let collect photos and
add metadata off-line, save metadata as an xml file in a folder
together with pictures and then upload files later.
