other 87 wiki in a collaborative way to reduce a duplication of effort on
similar content? Could we convince some of them to simply join us?
The usual variation is looser rules on notability and original
research. Failing all else, if the content is licence-compatible it's
suitable to being ported to Wikipedia.
