Forwarding this to wikisource-l, as with Ernest we discussed many times
about
"globalising" some templates or features.

Hallo,

TLDR: If you are an experienced editor on any Wikimedia project in any
language, please add your ideas here:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Which_templates_should_be_global

In more detail:

Continuing some recent discussions from Phabricator[1], Wikimedia
Hackathon, and Wikimedia Developers Summit, I'd like to ask the wider
community of editors in all projects:

Which templates could be useful for all Wikimedia projects, or at least for
_many_ projects?

A lot of templates are replicated manually, and it's a problem that is
well-known to all experienced editors. If there was a technology that
allows templates to be more conveniently globally managed, which templates
would you adapt to this technology first?

I started a list at
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Which_templates_should_be_global . Please
continue it! I'm very interested to hear from all projects and languages,
not only the big Wikipedias, so spread the word.

Thanks!

This is the query to find those template items (on Wikidata) that have many
sitelinks:
https://query.wikidata.org/#SELECT %3Ftemplate %3FtemplateLabel
%3Fsitelinks WITH {%0A SELECT %3Ftemplate (COUNT(%3Farticle) AS
%3Fsitelinks) WHERE {%0A %3Ftemplate wdt%3AP31%2Fwdt%3AP279*
wd%3AQ11266439.%0A %3Farticle schema%3Aabout %3Ftemplate%3B%0A
schema%3AisPartOf%2Fwikibase%3AwikiGroup "wikisource".%0A }%0A GROUP BY
%3Ftemplate%0A ORDER BY DESC(%3Fsitelinks)%0A LIMIT 100%0A} AS
%25commonTemplates WHERE {%0A INCLUDE %25commonTemplates.%0A SERVICE
wikibase%3Alabel { bd%3AserviceParam wikibase%3Alanguage
"[AUTO_LANGUAGE]%2Cen". }%0A}%0AORDER BY DESC(%3Fsitelinks)
