Would it be possible to produce a daily file in http://dumps.wikimedia.org/ with daily pageviews aggregated to Wikidata entities?
I believe this would be super useful for Wikidata maintenance, since it would rank the entities. For example, the CSV file for a given day would contain lines such as "Q7197 678901", meaning that entity Q7197 got 678901 total pageviews on that day, aggregated over all Wikimedia pages for that entity (in any language). From this, it would be easy to extract the top-N entities.
It’s definitely possible to compute this oneself from the existing downloadable files, but it’s painful to keep the analytics jobs running. Therefore, I’d find it great if Wikimedia could produce such a file. I’d even volunteer to write the code, but wouldn’t know where to start (which programming language, etc.)
