[Task] Create a new media info entity type
Closed, ResolvedPublic


We need a new entity type for storing structured data about media files.

From the story time meeting on 2016-02-23:

  • It does only have short caption, long caption and full featured statements.
  • No uniqueness constraints needed for labels and descriptions.
  • Missing references should be less prominent in the UI.

Open questions:

  • Which additional datatypes will be needed (e.g. multilingual; second-precision; smart-uri)
  • Further investigation of long caption (ALT-texts, etc..) and its format (wikitext, including templates etc..) needed.
  • How to represent legends?
