What to do next

We have in our GEMET data our first data online. We have already planned the import of the languages that are in ISO-639-3 and allow for the translation of these names to other languages. We will also extend the number of languages that can edit. Given that we are in pre-alpha and that we are at this moment still very much a development project, we include all languages that showed some activity towards localizing the MediaWiki user interface.

The question is what to do next. We cannot and should not rush the development but we do have a host of data that we could import. It could be other thesauri, glossaries or ontologies. It could be a long list of Expressions in a given language to populate a spell checker. We could import the data resulting from Duesentrieb's Wikiword application, this could give us a link to Wikipedia articles.

When we had more active collaborating developers, we could consider doing the import and export routine or we could start working on inflections.

What would you consider the next bit of data to import after the languages? What would you start programming on given where we are at this moment?

Go the Wikiword way :-) I love it.

What I'd like to see is being able to classify entries as nouns, verbs or adjectives and masculine or feminine. Maybe this is what the field "Attributes" is for? I couldn't quit figure out yet what this is good for. :-)
