thank you for your comments. I agree with them - the generated text
shouldn't be stored in the local Wikipedias, but merely cached. I have
updated the text accordingly to make it explicit.

I do not have a profile there and I am nowadays reluctant to add profiles.
Having said that. The data that will be in an abstract Wikipedia allows
for the generation of text in any language. What it does is enable the
generation of texts on the fly to be used as a complement to any Wikipedia.
Best is not to save generated texts but to cache them. We could even seek
for the routines and data used to generate articles for for instance the
Cebuano Wikipedia, remove the completely generated articles and keep the
same level of service. In this way it is for Wikipedians to write text and
have generated text as a basis to improve upon.
Hidden in Reasonator there is the "concept cloud". This is just one
example . It shows the items that are common in the Wikipedias for an
item. With an abstract Wikipedia we can compare and indicate what articles
do not have links to concepts that are known to be good. There may be all
kinds of reasons for that but it is easy to find the wrong reasons when you
compare it with what others include. You will find the problematic, the
erroneous and the bigoted links. When we do we could override the delivery
of that article with a choice to the "abstract" for comparison.

I really try not to spam the chat too much with pointers to my work on
the Abstract Wikipedia, but this one is probably also interesting for
Wikidata contributors. It is the draft for a chapter submitted to Koerner
and Reagle's Wikipedia@20 book, and talks about knowledge diversity
under the light of centralisation through projects such as Wikidata.
Public commenting phase is open until July 19, and very welcome:
