Hi Aigars,

I agree.

Seems very reasonable and doable to me.

There should also be documentation, that 

a.) you're the photographer, so people who dont want their photos taken should 
hide from you
b.) that you're automatically + immediatly uploading fotos to flickr, if I 
understood you correctly. (via some fancy wlan sdcard android phone setup...)

Speaking of this, I think it would be better if you were only uploading 
automatically to our git-annex and only push that to flickr after 24|48|72 
hours (or never), or doesnt flickr automatically claim rights on uploaded

I think this is reasonable and you should keep doing so, if people ask you for 
that. Even though you'll make mistakes :)
