@Anders: I seem to have unintentionally derailed your excellent
thread.   My apologies; I've taken responses to that subthread
offline.  To return to your main point: we do need  'A strategy for
semi-automated article generation; and inclusion of Wikidata'.

And it is important to attract and expand this sort of expertise.  Not
only through local chapter support but through collaboration across
different project-communities, as you say.

@Gerard: I second your vision for Wikidata.  It is a natural place to
cultivate tools for large-scale creation and enhancement of
information.  And for now it seems open to experimentation, being
bold, trying and reverting things.
