Hello all,
I want to send you some references for my suggestion during the tagging
I believe it could provide a simple solution to this documentation issue.

- Content translation: using the Translate extension (
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Translate, which can be imported
by Wiki admins I think) some Help pages on Wikidata are quite stable (and
other languages can keep synchronized), this would motivate also to reach a
single text content for many topics, example on wikidata
https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Help:Items : the base edition is in English,
but at every update every edition can keep updated like we do when
translating software in Transifex.

- Interest groups: I'm listed on the participant list for the italian
wikiproject (
https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:WikiProject_Italy/Participants) so
other people can mention the group and I get a notification, example here
someone wrote {{ping project|Italy}}; this would allow to group people
according to the interest in the tagging proposals. You can also see the
proposal model which could be adopted (
https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Property_proposal and also see RfC
for general discussions
https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Requests_for_comment ). This
functionality is provided by this Mediawiki module
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Echo and the template is

- Wikibase on WikiOSM: we have the Data Items (
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Data_items) which could be a starting
point to document the tagging in a machine readable way. It was configured
by Yuri Astrakan. If extended it can be used for configuring the Infoboxes
(this is already used by Wikipedia in some languages, the infoboxes are
populated by information from Wikidata), or we could also add a query
service to build dynamic pages (on wikipedia there's this tool to build
tables https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Listeria, see for example
this list of municipalities on my wiki page

These three items aren't dependent on WIki* availability, but are ideas
which can be imported and used independently on our instance.
