Hi everyone,

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?

I would like to invite everyone involved in GLAM projects on Commons to help us think about file metadata that is especially important for, and sometimes unique to, media files that have been provided/uploaded by GLAM institutions.

Feedback on GLAM metadata is collected here on the page: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Structured_data/Get_involved/Feedback_requests/Ontology#Discussion_for_metadata_that_is_specific_or_important_for_GLAMs

This consultation 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!
