How best to merge WUaS's main SUBJECT TEMPLATE with SQID?


... with this example of a SQID page (now with references - which are central to WUaS) ...

SQID example page of Douglas Adams -

Dear all,

By popular demand, SQID now also shows references for most statements (collapsed by default, of course). You can see it, e.g., here:



The example which Markus Kroetzsch shared about writer Douglas Adams seems particularly adaptable re the main WUaS  You_at_World_University - - and planned for all 11 billion people in 2100 and in all 8K languages.

Soon after posting this blog entry, another email came through from the Wikimedia Foundation (Wikipedia) Architecture Committee via a ArchCom Phabricator RFC page outlining further steps for sub team processes for WMF, but potentially re WUaS too, and now newly re WUaS with SQID which links to Wikidata/Wikibase in all ~358 Wikipedia languages, I think.

[Maniphest] [Retitled] T123606: RFC: Implement ArchCom-affiliated working groups (process inspired by Rust's "subteams")
RobLa-WMF changed the title from "RFC: Implement ArchCom subteams (process inspired by Rust's)" to "RFC: Implement ArchCom-affiliated working groups (process inspired by Rust's "subteams")".
RobLa-WMF edited the task description.


World University and School will grow and change a lot as we likely merge these pages/templates/approaches ...
