Importing and the recycling bin
- Open the Flickr repository
- Import a photo which automatically creates a link between the object locally and externally
- Move the local object to the recycling bin
- Try to reimport the external object
Reimporting is not possible because the object still exists locally in the recycling bin. Since recycled is just a state, all data related to the object is still in the system, including the link to the external object. Allowing users to import a second time leads to data duplication. Would it be better to move the local object back out of the recycling bin?
