Background: we want to make it possible for OpenRefine users to upload statements to arbitrary Wikibase instances.
Idea: the user should be able to specify which instance they want to push to just with a single URI. That URI should contain a "manifest" file which would describe everything we need to know about this instance (such as: URL of the MediaWiki API, query service, and so on).
We have drafted the necessary information as far as OpenRefine is concerned:
Of course the idea is that manifest file could also be consumed by other tools which could be adapted to various Wikibase instances - so there might be other sensible things to add there.
We need input about:
- the format and typical URI of that file?
- which information to include (what is redundant, what did we forget, …)?
