There is a new feedback request up on Wikimedia Commons regarding
Structured Data on Commons. The topic is a very important discussion:
between wikitext-in-Mediawiki, Wikibase on Commons, and Wikibase on
Wikidata, what file metadata gets store where?
The discussion is here:
It will formally run for two weeks, closing on 1 March. There will not be
decisions made at that time, this is a part of the information-gathering
process in order to make the informed decisions.
Thank you for your time, see you on the wiki.

This has been missing for some time -- there is no way for researchers to
use commons to share and archive freely-licensed data files. It came up
again at the dev summit as a persistent problem (despite the existence of
the Data namespace); has there been any recent talk about enabling this?
