Hoi,
I have added the minimal I have to do for  Mozambique [1].  They are three
Listeria lists and consequently they will update. I do work on the data but
my objective is not to complete them all.  I add the relation to the higher
level "administrative and territorial entity". To do this I often add new
ones and change items that are a combination of two levels (eg a town and
an entity). These are different, require different statements.

What I also do is copy these queries to Wikipedias. I do that when I do
that. Now I am working on the Zulu Wikipedia so the Yoruba and other
Wikipedias have to wait.

My wish is for people to notice this work, contribute to it and use the
result in templates. In the Celtic Knot conference, at the recent
Wikimania, presentations were made how information can be provided from
Wikidata using infoboxes that require little expertise and work. When a
small Wikipedia does not have basic information like the places where
people were born or died, that information has to be available from
something different from articles. When it is not possible to link, the
article will quickly become rather empty.

There is an ongoing discussion to update the Incubator project by providing
them with wikis. Supporting them with data is something I have advocated
for years. Particularly Africa has not been treated equally, the
information / data gap is huge. Have a look at this as well when you care
for Mozambique [2].
Thanks,
      GerardM
