Thank you Léa for the link,

I seize the opportunity to also ask anyone who have links related to Wikidata and the choice of CC0 as license for this project.

What Wikidata already achieved and its further possibilities is very attractive to me. But so far CC0 is a far more repulsive point. Now maybe with more documentation I might change my mind, I think at least I should make some research to have a more informed opinion on the topic. So any documentation is welcome on how it was decided, what have been the misc. pros/cons highlighted, how was the community involved (or not) in the decision.

Also, I heard last week during Wikiconvention Francophone that there are some actions on sister projects that generate content on Wikidata, without informing the user it does so. Afterward I was explained with more precise statements, saying that it was things like syslogs stored in Wikidata. I would like to be sure:

 * what actions on sister projects might generate publication of what
   kind of data on Wikidata
 * and that legal enquiries have been done about that. So we are
   certain that none of this publication might create legal threats. As
   I understand it, the user action end up with published (unlike raw
   syslog) data under a license which wasn't explicitly agreed. Or
   hopefully, I was misinformed, or misunderstood something.

Thanks again for the link, I think I will watch the conference about Wiktionary with much interest and profit other records to learn more about the project.
