Jdlrobson moved this task from Incoming to Triaged but Future on the Readers-Web-Backlog board.

Not sure if this is the right place, but is it clearly marked somewhere that such descriptions are not part of enWiki?

@JEumerus, we have discussed that specific concern on the talk page here, right now the Android team is working on a functionality to help edit Wikidata on Android At some point in the future, further modification to the feature on mobile app, can make use of the lessons learned from the Android feature with edit capabilities.

I'll admit, I don't see how the discussion there addresses the concern indicated here at all. Maybe in a distant future it would, but nothing for the short term.

Hi @JEumerus, apologies if that was not clear, the point it, for the future, indeed, further changes can apply to the feature, given the ongoing experimentation and work on the same feature on different platforms, i.e. Android. Thank you.

Well, the issue is still that this task will result in Wikidata content appearing as if it's enWikipedia content.

@ovasileva found this lurking in a hidden column, so I moved it to where you could see it. Feel free to do with it what you need. :)
