Ladies and Gentlemen,
respected club members of ipernity,

we step on now with

Agenda item 12: Miscellaneous

As agenda item 12.1 the club member ©UdoSm submitted a motion,
which has been published here in advance. The translated wording is:

“At the Ipernity General Meeting 2020, I request that a resolution be made that it will again be possible to load one's own IP albums back onto one's own PC for backup purposes.
This possibility has not existed for years, because some of the former third-party programs for this purpose no longer exist, and some of them no longer run or only run with an increased security risk for one's own PC. Sami Serola, for example, has also investigated and determined this. I myself was often in exchange with Bernhard and William. All important competitors of IP have such possibilities. Thank you. UdoSM”

(You may read the German original here.)

Furthermore, some background information was made accessible, which Udo published in his own blog: Udo's article "Download from Ipernity to your own Computer" .

In a commentary underneath this article Sami Serola, who acts as technical advisor of the ima team, gave the following summary of the situation and the existing possibilities:

“Udo, I hope you do understand that all options have been and still are dependent on third party solutions. Christophe Ruelle and associates probably chose to use Metalink because it allows the access to full size images via one "link", instead of going through all individual links for each image.

However, Metalink, DownThemAll, and any of the available browsers are not under our control. We can only express our wishes for the developers of those services and software. Earlier versions of DownThemAll stopped working on Firefox because for example Metalink approach was no longer allowed by browser developers.

In short it really means that the only solution is to use browser and DownThemAlll versions old enough, which still allows Metalink."

It's an interesting proposal, but what's the effort associated with it?
