In fact the unit corresponds to the « mean gregorian year », and I created a fresh item for this, to be sure there is no pollution from inconsistent datas on Wikipedia articles.
Indeed. I don’t know if a unit has previously be added to the translation table after the first initialization, but the problem seem to be that creating a ticket and pinging everyone for such simple task seems like an overkill procedure. I don’t know if someone less community involved or a newbie would even try to do something like this.

Psychoslave added a comment.
That mean that you could potentially indeed rebuild the very same set of
books with a prose automaton, but also (and most likely) many other prose
variations. And if you would include predicates extracted from fanfictions
from different sources and unsourced predicates around Harry Potter
universe including potentially completely novel ones, that would probably
be a even more closely corresponding analogy with the current state of
*This is rather unrealistic at this point and unrelated to my point. The
question raised is rather : Wikipedia has an infobox. Wikidata has the same
informations compared to that infobox, but it was not imported but rebuilt
from scratch by a user. *

Well, entries that were not created thanks to massive import from
Wikipedia obviously don't raise any concern of infringement of Wikipedia
community copyright. It doesn't say more about those that were indeed
imported in such a way, do it?
As far as I understand copyright, if by a pure random event I happen to
write exactly one page of Harry Potter, I can’t publish this as easily as I
would want. The stuff is protected whatever the way it was created. So it
does not matter if we actually imported datas or it happens we
substancially have the same result by over means.

Well, you just said that that there might be cases "where copyright law
permits the extraction of information from copyrighted texts", so I believe
that an explicit indication about those cases in the CC-BY-SA license could
be helpful for other people to avoid repeating this conversation in other

In such cases there is a simple rule which says that you should choose the safest way in order to comply with the law, as any doubt remaining would be baneful.
Just to check if there is an actual problem here: let’s imagine a theorical usecase.

I think the simpler the writing of the query is, the better for the user. As a user, I’d prefer not having to care about wikibase:label at all, having a label for a human is such an important and basic thing … Most of the time it’s just annoying to have to add this to a query.

For the iterator usecase, I wrote a library of base iterators : that allows to https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Module:Iterators that can be composed to make powerful stuffs.

Hi, maybe I come after the battle, but if you're not aware of this, Wikidata has now a "conversion to SI unit" that could come valuable for this as it stores the value of the configuration file.

You are working on automatic mapping ? Does seem a little hard indeed. I
was thinking on optional manual mapping in the UI of the formula datatype
as a first step. Maybe we could suggest a few predefined operator mappings
for common case later ...
It's not a question of appearance, but of meaning. In a boolean algebra,
the inputs and result of the operation are sets, whereas in logics we
manipulate truth values of different kind.
Otherwise it would be like a Wikipedia article where every word is a link.
I don't think it's a question of generating a link, but a way to have a generic math formula semantics precisions.

The variables are mapped, but what about the operators ?
