Huh, I forgot that the Inkscape bug report also had a section for the
website, my bad.
Well, I've been looking around, and in the past the problem was caused
by updates changing the owner of the directory to another user or to
Changing the owner back to who it should be (apache:apache ?) should
solve the problem.
Anybody able to do that?

I had the same problem two weeks ago when I tried to upload an image to my blueprint proposal for Export bitmap UI changes.

Objet : [Inkscape-devel] Image uploading on Inkscape Wiki?
Recently I've been working on a UI redesign proposal for the
Tiled Clones interface, and thought of creating a new page
on the Inkscape Wiki to see if it's even plausible.
However, when I tried to upload images, I get:
The upload directory (public) is not writable by the webserver.
A quick search only tells me that it's a permissions problem.
I've also noticed that there were no new file uploads since July
last year. Has there been a policy change? Any suggestions as
to where else to upload them then?
In case anybody's curious, major suggestions are:
- On-canvas guides
- Separation into Symmetries, Radial Clones, Rectangular
tiles and Triangle tiles (basically dependent on the guide type)
- Move from a floating box to a side-bar dialogue, where you can
basically stack symmetries and tilings to a selected object
with LPEs, so it's easy if you want to make a flower-shaped
design then have it fill up the page as tiles, for example)
- Top-level options are simple and intuitive to address the main
use cases (I'm assuming most users just want to do some basic
symmetrical or radial patterns...)
- But more advanced options are available by clicking "advanced"
and opening a separate box (to avoid cluttering the main dialogue.
If the user wants jittery tiles distributed in an outward spiral that
change colors and become transparent near the end, surely
he can open an extra dialogue)
- Presets are also available
