I am giving notice that I will no longer maintain the people who are known to have died on Wikidata. There are a few reasons:
I have been indicating the need for importing data from DBpedia for a long time and, there are always reasons why people think it is fine to wait even longer until their pet project is ready. It implies  that they assume that everything will remain the same in the mean time. I refuse to accept that attitude and that is why I will stop adding more dates of death as a regular practice.

This does not mean that the data is not there, it does not mean that Wikidata cannot have it. It means that we import from sources that are known to be as trustworthy as Wikipedia. After all DBpedia data is based on Wikipedia.

I will have more fun doing other things.
