For any lurkers: kephale and I got it sorted out via PMs. The Special:ChangeUploadPassword should be fully working. Let us know if not.
Also: new ImageJ website skin! You can even vote on it if you feel so inclined. :smile: (The Fiji site remains the same; hopefully everyone likes that one.)

@tinevez Google v. Oracle in court, on whether using someone else's public API is covered by "fair use" doctrine.
Google winning is good news: it means that you can code an alternative Java implementation against the Java specification without having to pay Oracle.

If you couldn't do that, then any time a company put out some OSS, you might still have to pay them to use it how you want? Which is... WTF???
"Sure, the implementation is open source, but you need to license the API from us!" Argh
