I seize the opportunity of this planed import to make you aware that I
Admittedly, a driving force behind the launch of this project is an
intuitive aversion against CC0, and the will of the Wikidata team to launch
their lexicological solution with, without, or even against Wiktionary
communities. But as intuition is never as useful as when feeding hypotheses
of rational inquiry whose conclusions might reject it, I thought preferable
to make such a research project so I could stand on a firmer vision of
implications of this choice.
Also, whatever one might ethically feel about this topic is one thing,
legal issues is a really different matter. So far, I have didn't found any
evidence of a serious inquiry of letting people make mass import of data
within Wikidata. But hopefully I'll soon be given links showing such an
inquiry was indeed performed. Not requiring source and evidence of a free
license covering imported data is a great way to put at risk of massive
legal infraction, not only the Wikidata project, but anyone who reuse its

reuse ability, what notable partnership was ease or prevented due to the
license, how external reusers do or do not give back through one form
(better curated or enlarged set of data), or an other (technical advises,
institutional promotion, fundsâŠ), and anything you think worth mentioning
regarding Wikidata license. It would be kind to check it is not already in

I'm writing it in my native language to hasten the draft outcome and I
don't necessarily expect huge interest for the subject beyond myself. But
if people show interest, or even would like to contribute, I can switch to
Esperanto, or even the less likely demand of an English version. ;)
Thank you for this nice feature!
I have created a few months ago a prototype of Wikisource to Wikidata importation tool for the French Wikisource based on the schema.org annotation I have added to the main header template (I definitely think we should move from our custom microformat to this schema.org markup that could be much more structured). It's not yet ready but I plan to move it forward in the coming weeks. A beginning of frontend to add to your Wikidata common.js is here: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/User:Tpt/ws2wd.js
We should probably find a way to merge the two projects.
Sorry, I am much more of a Wikidatan than a Wikisourcerer! I was referring to items like this onehttps://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q21125368
No need to be sorry, that is actually a good question and this example is even better (I totally forgot this kind of case).
For now, this is probably better to deal with it by hands (and I'm not sure what this tools can even do for this).
