When I try to upload images I get the following warning:

so, the function and message itself is incorporated in MediaWiki directly, and editing is probably not impossible, but rather painful, since you would have to translate the text in all supported languages, plus edit the MediaWiki core, and merge your changes with every update coming in. In other words: It is somehow impossible. ;-)

What we can do is tweaking the file sizes when a warning gets triggered. Right now, I have configured the wiki the following way:

$wgUploadSizeWarning = 1024 * 1024 * 5;
$wgMaxUploadSize = 1024 * 1024 * 25;

I would feel uncomfortable with more than 25 MB upload size, since the wiki is no file storage. However, we can talk about raising the warning size. :-) What do you think makes sense?

2) Some uploaded images display properly, some don't:

It indeed seems that MediaWiki has a problem with resizing these files, independent of whether we use ImageMagick or not, and independent of the memory limitation I configure. I can't solve this ad-hoc, but will put it on the todo to be fixed then.

Is this only for larger size images, or did you spot this also for much smaller files?

3) We need more license options in the drop-down file upload box

That was an easy task, they're added now. :)
