  • Component changed from Administration to Gallery
  • Keywords needs-patch added

  • Keywords 2nd-opinion added
  • Priority changed from normal to low
  • Severity changed from normal to minor

Isn't this done automatically when an attachment has no parent?

Also, wouldn't it be more reliable to duplicate the attachment, with a new parent, when it gets inserted in a separate post?
