Open, MediumPublic

Description

As suggested by @StevenJ81 at T54971#4735320, let's try to enabe property support before sitelinks here.

(I'm not sure if there are "attempt to index field 'wikibase' (a nil value)" issues or not...), anyway posted locally

Does this still need community consensus as it is tagged?

No, I don't think so, it's a beta wiki. It's for testing stuff

@Reedy , while I agree with the first clause of your statement, I must correct the latter one: Beta Wikiversity is not a beta wiki for testing stuff like testwikipedia or testwikidata are. It is a full fledged content Wikimedia project being that to separate Wikiversities what Wikimedia Incubator is to separate Wikipedias, Wikivoyages, Wiktionaries, and Wikinewses.

Ugh. Yeah. This is why we shouldn't reuse names like we do. See also naming things is h ard

Maybe the only way to address what @Reedy concerns above, is to rename the root url of this wiki to https://mul.wikiversity.org/ (like T64717), but that's a separated question.

Dear Beta Wikiversity admins: what's the status of local discussion? Looks like no further comments after my posting?!

I am an admin, but I do not think this requires community consensus. At least I cannot remember that there has been community consensus on every single wiki where arbitrary access has been rolled out.

We're going to move forward with this. Next steps:

  • update and improve task description
  • get details about how we can enable arbitrary access without coupling it with enabling sitelinks
