Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

The attached patch allows a user to submit a URL pointing to a WXR import file, rather then uploading it. The purpose of this is to allow people to import a WXR file that is larger then their server's max_upload_size/max_post_size php.ini settings.

Sounds like this would be better in the WP importer plugin, as that's all WXR is used for. If we wanted to expose this as an option to all importes, then it would make sense in the base class.

This is on my radar for the Summer of Code project, unless a better way of transferring data (not encapsulated in WXR) between installations is adopted.

I'm going to close this one out as a maybelater. There's been no interest shown in 9+ years.

Discussion can always continue on closed tickets. If someone is interested in investing time to solve this, they're welcome to reopen and assign the ticket to themselves.
