This was discussed during a session of the [[d:Wikidata:Events/30 lexic-o-days 2021 Wikidata:Events/30 lexic-o-days 2021]].
Lexemes contributors prefer to avoid adding all the available Lingua Libre recordings on a Lexeme (see the example of the word "forêt" on the French Wiktionary : 30+ recordings).
Since there's no way for the bot to "determine" the "quality" or relevance of a recording, we came up with the idea of a tool to help contributors do that job.
While creating a gadget (T279826) is a more beautiful solution, a preferred temporary and reliable solution would be the following :
- For each language, create a "Wiki page" on Wikidata - so that contributors can put it in their watchlist. Something with a name like Recordings to review/en, /fr... <--- USE Qids HERE?
- When the bot tries to add a recording, if a lexeme's form already has a pronunciation file, it will instead add the recording to a list on the "Recordings to review/language" page.
This way, if it occurs that a newer recording is available, contributors will be:
- notified that a new recording should be reviewed
- choose whether or not to replace the current one with the newer one
As said above, this implementation has limitations, but again it will serve as a good compromise until we can develop a gadget for this.
