You kind of get an idea of the complexity that builds up, after the
hoops I jumped through to get the collapsible box template working, so
I definitely think that we should have a very clear goal before
proceeding any further with this.
Frankly I still don't really understand why we need to import
anything, at all. There are other options that don't create problems
like templates, forks or obsolete data.
We could simply have a shortlist of the articles, for example. We
could make a list on our wiki, make some sort of category on
Wikipedia, if that's permissible, or base it on an existing category.
The Flagged Revisions system could be a tremendous help in future. We
should also see how Wikipedia 1.0 is doing, and what their processes
are. We don't really need to start from scratch.
