I started an article on MediaWiki.org
options to manage
data within MediaWiki inlcuding a comparison table between Semantic

Feel free to contribute or share:
The goal is for MediaWiki users to know the basic differences and to
help them deciding which option to chose for their usecase.
From taking a quick look, I'm mostly confused by
* Everything is "data" so the page title feels misleading. Maybe you
meant something like structured data?
* Why is it under the "Manual" namespace? It has no instructions... :)
It isn't linked from another Manual: page (but that's because I
reverted the link on "mw:Manual:What_is_MediaWiki?" as it feels too
specific for such a high-level overview page)
* Why does it list "Stable releases"? Many projects don't create
tarballs anymore but allow creating packages on the fly from stable
Git branches. Stating there are no stable releases is misleading and
could sound like a project is unstable which is not true.
* Why does it list "Upgrade instructions" (without references so I'm
not sure where to find them), and why is that a relevant criterion?
* Why does "Community" list irrelevant "watchers" in Github, when
development does not happen in Github for two out of three projects?
Where do these numbers come from, as I cannot see them on Github?
* What are judgments like "easy" under "Installation" based on?
* Do you plan to regularly update all those numbers and maintain that
wiki page for years to come...?
