I'm experimenting a bit with this arbitrary access. For retrieving date of birth etc, it works fine.

Now I'd like to retrieve the start date a person was the mayor of a city.


I can get the property P6 from the Arlon WD item just fine, but it's not clear to me what will happen when the other mayors will be added as well.

Of course this is rather useless, as now his name is shown.

The dates are in P580 and P582 one level deeper.

So is there a way to retrieve them from the Arlon WD item? Or should I have added these dates to the WD item about Netzer. I tried that, but I have the same problem to fetch them.

Another question is: now these dates are in 2 WD items. I don't like duplicating information though, it's very undatabase like... I mean not normalized.

Hey :)

Rollout of arbitrary access is going well. So we're continuing on more
projects. Here's the schedule for the next projects to get it:

11 June 2015: all Wikiquote, all remaining Wikivoyage
15 June 2015: arwiki, cawiki, eswiki, huwiki, kowiki, rowiki, ukwiki, viwiki
