Hello Stas,

Sounds like a good idea :)

Don't hesitate to ask if you need any help, for the migration as for the
communication / announcement.

> So, I'd like to propose a migration plan:
> 0. Put a message on MediaWiki page warning of migration and directing

> time? This of course will be done only after we decide to perform the
> migration.
> 1. Sync Wikidata page to MediaWiki one (that'll require some work due to
> template differences, etc. but I can do it in a couple of hours).
> 2. Switch WDQS GUI to use the Wikidata page.
> 3. Replace MediaWiki page with redirect to wikidata one with appropriate
> message.
> I can do all of it (except maybe for protecting part, I'd need to ask

> request for feedback before doing anything big. So please comment if you
