I wish everyone joy and happiness. I hope that we will find the cooperation that will make WiktionaryZ the success that we hope for.
The next important deliverable is a "write up" by Erik where he explains what Wikidata is about. How it can be used and how certain essentials are delivered. As much as an explanation it will also be the mental excercise needed to get more programmers involved in Wikidata. Combine this with the amount of inline documentation that PHP provides and it will open up many possibilities to many programmers, inside the Wikimedia Foundation an out.
Let me be really clear about one thing; Wikidata is powerfull stuff in its own right. In one way it is really great that its first implementation is so ambitious; when you can model this. You can model almost everything. In another it means that as WiktionaryZ is dependent on Wikidata, it will move forward technically at the same speed. Given that the namespace manager will be in Mediawiki 1.6 and given that other infrastructure issues are addressed things could not look more prommissing that the way they do.
For the language guys reading this; we are seriously considering to "steal" a page out of the LMF book; particularly for lexicological information we are going to have "Attributes" that are defined in a language specific way and that are going to be defined particularly in three places; the Expression, the SynTrans and the DefinedMeaning level. This means that we are about to ditch the LexicalItem. This will do us two things; it will make the core of WiktionaryZ more efficient and it will allow us to be more language specific from the start. As we will have Attributes that are conditional on other Attributes and as this will be reflected in the User Interface I think this may reflect the core idea of LMF. Then again I do not really know as I do not really understand enough of LMF yet.
