Having bots that list tasks that need doing is a great way to get things
done. But you need to think carefully who you target this work at. We do
have bots that tell editors when they've linked an article to a
disambiguation page, there is some logic in that as the person who added
the information is more likely to understand it and know which other
article it really should be added to. But for general gnomish work like
categorisation adding wikilinks and now migrating to wikidata, better I
suggest to create some category and try to recruit gnomes to do that work
en masse. Someone who creates a few dozen articles might not fancy learning
about wikidata, but a gnome who specialises in it might do many times that
amount of migration.
Remember the essence of crowd sourcing is to get lots of people to take on
the parts of the task that they want to do.
