We will create a robust, real-time event stream tracking the creation and modification of external links and references across Wikimedia projects. This data stream will provide tool developers, content partners, and other data consumers (libraries and GLAM institutions, metadata organizations, researchers, altmetrics providers) a canonical data source to track and contribute to the sourcing work of Wikimedia volunteers. This is a dependency for the link rot initiative [2.6]
An event stream tracking the creation and modification of external links and references across Wikimedia projects is delivered.
