This is indeed an amazing project !!  I encourage anyone interested in federated approaches to scaling Wikidata, or reconciliation generally, to engage.

Hello Wikimedia community,

I posted a message on Wikidata's project chat explaining that I would like to stop working on Wikidata integration in OpenRefine (which also applies to Wikimedia / Wikibase integration in general):

Wikidata integration in OpenRefine: could this be your project?

I do intend to keep working on OpenRefine and focus my work on the core tool. I am by far not the only contributor to Wikibase integration, but I want to make it clear that I am keen to let other contributors take the lead on this, because I do not have enough time myself to grow this part of the tool as much as it deserves.

As I explain in Wikidata's project chat, I think this is a really nice project to work on, and you will be supported by Sandra Fauconnier, our project director, who is a keen Wikimedian.

So: the floor is yours!

If you are interested in the topic, join us today in our Wikimania hackathon session:
