The Wikibase date datatype has a notion of precision, and also a lesser known notion of upper and lower bounds expressed as integer multiples of this precision.
For instance, the following data value represents the current day in UTC:
Precision 1 day
(meaning that it starts at the beginning of 2018-05-17, midnight, and continues until the next day)
When creating a claim with a date value in the Wikibase UI, by default the "After" parameter is set to 0. Is it intentional? I believe that 1 should be the default value there (regardless of the precision).
If this is indeed a bug, should we run a bot to fix all the date values?
If this is not a bug, then there is a bug in Wikidata-Toolkit, which agrees with this interpretation of the default value:
(except that there is a typo there: before-tolerance should obviously be after-tolerance in the last comment)
