  • Technical and Implementational Aspects of MediaWiki
    Topics discussed in greater or lesser detail
    • Installation and maintenance of MediaWiki, hosting services offering out-of-the-box wikis
    • Getting templates into fresh wiki installations
    • Semantic MediaWiki vs. Wikibase
    • Using Wikidata with stand-alone wikis
    • Merging datasets into Wikidata (while avoiding duplicates)
    Main Conclusions
    • Developed the idea that there should be a “core set” of (most popular? most expected?) templates (automatically) derivable from the (here understood: English) Wikipedia with which to seed new MediaWiki installations
    • Concluded that the Wikidata UI, especially on query.wikidata.org, still needs a lot of work
