I took the challenge: http://foolswisdom.com/media-library-and-wordpress-plugin-challenge/
WordPress 2.5 includes a new Media manager, However, It only knows about files which have been uploaded via the WordPress interface, Not files which have been uploaded via other means(eg, FTP).
So i present, “Add From Server” a WordPress plugin which allows you to browse the filesystem on the webserver and copy any files into the WordPress uploads system, Once “imported” it’ll be treated as any other uploaded file, and you can access it via the Media Library.
You may download the first-version plugin here: http://dd32.id.au/files/add-from-server.zip
I expect its got a number of bugs in it, And it’ll need some more work on it in the coming weeks, But it works!
