Organize MediaWiki's catalog of 1000s of extensions using Wikidata. Is this
a sensible idea? Reality checks and other opinions are welcome here or at

Pasting the relevant part for convenience:

Has anybody discussed the possibility of creating Wikidata items for
extensions, after defining a set of properties to describe them? Linking
those Wikidata items to extension pages, and then playing
with templates and what not to keep the semantic data up to date (version
number, last release, dependencies, compatible with MediaWiki releases...)?
Then play with templates, queries and visualizations to create all kinds of
useful output, from structured extension pages to a proper and robust map
of extensions.
