Hey everyone,

As we have just introduced ourselves on wikidata-l, we are currently working on a PubSubHubbub [1] extension [2] to MediaWiki. Currently, the extension only works on MediaWiki articles, not on Wikibase objects. For those articles we are using the wiki markup as exchange format (using URLs with action=raw), but currently there is no equivalent in Wikibase.
We heard there’s work on a common JSON format that – in contrast to the current JSON format – will be standardized and could thus be used for our purpose. Are there plans to implement the new format any time soon and is that format the way to go for us?


Alexander and Sebastian.
