As soon as SDC General is rolled out in 2018, volunteer tools will be very helpful to assist in translating current unstructured or semi-structured data to structured data in file pages on Wikimedia Commons.
Commons categories are a specific use case. A lot of information is contained in them; some categories are connected to Wikidata, but many are not (both very specialized subcategories, and intersection categories that combine two or more separate concepts).
- Help inventorize how such tools would ideally work
- Support volunteer developers when developing such tools
- Inform the Commons and Wikidata communities about the tools and how to use them (documentation)
