As a point of order, if this request came from a wiki that only had 10 admins and 2 bureaucrats, I don't think it would be taken seriously even if there was consensus. Especially after https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requests_for_comment/Userrights_on_Hindi_Wikipedia.

Phabricator is not the right place to "evaluate" consensus that has already been evaluated by the community.
This is done all the time; proper community consensus is required to handle all site requests on Phabricator. See https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requesting_wiki_configuration_changes and https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Limits_to_configuration_changes. (As a disclosure, I did oppose this proposal.)

As a note for the future, the Main Page should remain as-is with the warning to wait to edit until importing has taken place. It should probably be reverted right now.

Seems to be a duplicate of T232753

I'm not sure, I know Erwin's tool worked that way but I'm not sure if mine did.
@MarcoAurelio It actually works for me, it is just super slow.

I got it working. I had to do the following:
This doesn't seem to work. This works:

It was an Echo notification - "A page you created was linked to on Wikimedia Commons"

Maybe some sort of rate limit/captcha on high-visibility items?

So far so good, some of the pages are working again, and others are working after a purge. I'm still monitoring the script errors category.

In fact, https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Wikidata:WikiProject_Roads/United_States/California&oldid=276427363 was working as of November 2015. Something changed in Wikibase between then and now, more likely closer to now (I only noticed this in the last few weeks).

I lost track of whether it was possible to create the property yet or not.

I worry that this would quickly turn into https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requests_for_comment/Userrights_on_Hindi_Wikipedia.

Maybe not on test wikis, since there might be a legitimate purpose there?

@Yurik "Yes, the rules are slightly different, but I doubt there will be many fundamental disagreements about the data." How do you know this for sure? I can think of several cases off the top of my head where it would be different. Take California state highways: sometimes the road still exists, but is no longer a state highway. One of the fundamentals of good programming is accounting for corner cases, rather than trying to shoehorn everything into one paradigm/user story.

Isn't this relying on OpenStreetMap for data though, outside of our control? I don't think this is the right way to go.

@putnik Any updates?

This would still be helpful so that other operators could run the bot.

@MarcoAurelio I've given you access to hat-collector on toollabs so you can copy it over.

I believe everything was copied over to the stewardbots project before I stepped down, though unfortunately I don't remember the details and I suppose it could have gotten broken in the labs chaos.

Enforcing a conversion to a geodatabase format without any migration path is not a good idea, however, and will lead to the loss of data or a reluctance to migrate data to Wikidata.

It is hard to say, since this is (according to my understanding) a security issue, and because it is not clear how Wikidata will affect this.
