Quick first story grooming:

  • Converting dates is an extremely hard problem. See T87764, for example. Whatever we implement will most probably be a "good enough" solution that will stop working in many situations (e.g. Chinese).
  • Deleting template parameters is certainly possible. It was not part of the original CommonsHelper2 specification, that's why we have not talked about it yet.
  • Wrapping text in language templates is part of the original CommonsHelper2 specification. We decided this should not be part of an MVP. A separate ticket exists: T198607.
  • I think the last bit is technically already resolved via T198316. I juts went to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:FileImporter/Data/de.wikipedia#Licensing and added this alternative headline.
