Hi Lester,

I'm sure that wikidata would love to be able to put the EduBase data in to
their system. A cover page would then show progress of how much data has
been populated in to wikidata. It wouldn't show how much data is in OSM
(unless everyone also put the OSM id in wikidata).

If you were thinking we could make the taginfo script to write to wikidata
instead then I don't think they accept data like that. As a reminder here
is the file (sheet 2). As expected progress appears to be negative so far
but this is because we are cleaning existing bad data up :-)
