Design upload process

This ticket exists to track the interaction design of the upload

I'll try to start designing this and post iterations to the mailing
list to get feedback.

Questions that need to be answered:

-  What are the different use cases? What goals do our users have?
-  How can we reach these goals in typical awesome GNU MediaGoblin
   fashion? What steps will the users have to take to upload media?
-  What kind of information will they need to provide in the forms?
   What should be mandatory and what should be optional?
-  How do we deal with uploading large amounts of images? How can
   we provide the best way to upload a single image, several images or
   a huge number of images?


After the design is done we can divide it into smaller parts, check
what still needs to be done and report bugs on those issues.

-  A single photo via a simple form
-  An arbitrary number of photos via an expandable form
-  An arbitrary number of photos in a compressed archive, via a
-  All of the above via an API

So I haven't given much thought to bulk uploading via anything
other than the API.

I have thought a lot about single-file uploading, I'll describe
what I've thought about this, then we'll see how it relates to
multi-file uploading.

There will be different uploading needs depending on what media
type is being uploaded (once we start doing uploads of more than
images) maybe? There might be some extra steps that you'd have to
ask a user after uploading a video that you wouldn't have to ask
after uploading an image.

So my thoughts on how the submission will work is that it might be
- The first page where you select the media type submit a title,
description, main file
- The system checks if the media type (or other plugins) require
any extra information, shows it up as another page. Possibly shows
another page if necessary.

For most cases I think there will be just one or two pages that
will be iterated through on the submission page. But maybe the
needs (behind the fundamentals) will be different for different

Am I making sense? This might be complicated with multi-upload
stuff, I think is what I'm saying.

Ok, so I'm going to close this ticket.

So far the different pages have been growing kind of organically
and the "upload process", in its current state, consists of a
single page. I'll work on it when I have some more to work with, or
if issues come up. I can then create tickets that are a lot
specific. :)
