This was scheduled for July 2015! Could you please give an update? Thanks.

@Yann Arbitrary access has been enabled for a while on almost all projects, see https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Arbitrary_access

Wikimedia Commons is still pending. The multilingual nature of commons makes showing information from wikidata more difficult.

This ticket is still open to track any improvements we are working on.

May be we can do a "baby-step" and enable access to

  1. numeric data, like dates,
  2. alpha-numeric like Authority control Identifiers
  3. and text in English only

That way "multilingual nature of commons" should not get in the way. Latter we can add full functionality.
Another "baby-step" would be to make it initially accessible only from pages linked from wikidata properties like "Commons Category", "Commons Creator page" and "Commons Institution page". That would get us started and we would not need to wait for full functionality.

Full functionality is already ready, but we wait for people to test it on Wikimedia Commons beta (http://commons.wikimedia.beta.wmflabs.org/) once that is done, we can enable it on the real commons (unless there are unexpected problems or other technical concerns).

You might find beta-testers if you post a message on the Village Pump. IMO any improvement is good, even if a small step.

We have only enabled it on beta late last week and didn't yet manage to invite people for testing. I presume that will happen tomorrow or on Wednesday. Let's move this discussio to T98307 please as this is not the relevant ticket for this.
