Obviously I am wanting Wikisource reproductions to be better findable, both internally and externally. Better and more easily usable.
I am hoping that the project will be able to tell me what is possible for my wishes for an integrated ability to interact and inject pertinent detail crosswki. in the easiest, most reliable, and referenced form.
Ultimately I am also hoping for better input/workflow tools to make things easier and better, and to stop having to add the same data at multiple places.
- Creating a commons file
- Creating the wikisource components, transcluding, then creating the WD item for the edition, then needing to create the work item for the parent
- Then having to update the Commons file to link back to the WD item
- then edit the WD item to add the IA details
- Then I head over to Wikipedia to then find the right template to re-add the data parameter by parameter, when I should either be able to just add a contextual template or use a lookup form or a template add the WD item, and just be able to have the data inhaled and added.
(all the around and around and around)
At the moment I use the WEF framework tool though while it is pretty good, it doesn't completely suit needs at creating/editing items from enWS. I would love to be able to have a customisable tool to create/edit WD from the sister wikis rather than having to go to WD and manually edit the item. Similarly FROM something like s:en:A catalogue of notable Middle Templars, with brief biographical notices/Bayley, Sir Edward Clive I want to be able to directly apply to the related main subject's item (not its own item) the data able to be pushed in and referenced.
No idea exactly how much of that is in scope, but that is what I hope we can think about, or poke somewhere as a way to interlink and overlay data between the sisters. :-)
