Putting extension-related information into wikidata.org seems inappropriate though, the same way that putting metainformation about individual files from Commons onto wikidata.org is inappropriate. Maybe it should be a wikidata local-only repo?

I think it is fine on Wikidata itself.
Commons is different in so far that the local community demands a lot more control and that the amount of data is considerably larger.

It'll happen on the 20th of November.

Just to make sure, it has been moved one month since https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikidata/2015-September/007106.html (was linked to that in another ticket after asking this question), and you didn't just mistakenly replace October with November?
