We would like to add new calendar model to Wikidata for supporting Hebrew dates.
Conversion from Hebrew dates to Georgrian is pretty straight forward.
Exception: Hebrew dates don't start in the midnight but in the sunset.
How to deal with it (in case we don't know the hour/minute/second) when converting to Georgian:
- Most of the day is daylight so usually it can be ignored and get the correct date
- To indicate it is not lossless conversion by changing the precision of converted dates?
