Wikidata Repository Site Launches, Will Begin Accepting Links Shortly
Direct to Wikidata
The site is designed to host interwiki links was launched late last week/early this week and will begin accepting links shortly according to a Wikimedia “Singpost” technology report.
The report goes on to say:
The site, which is one half of the forthcoming Wikidata trial (the other half being the Wikidata client, which will be deployed to the Hungarian Wikipedia shortly) will also act as a testing area for phase 2 of Wikidata (centralised data storage). The longer term plan is for Wikidata.org to become a “Wikimedia Commons for data” as phases 2 and 3 (dynamic lists) are developed, project managers say.
