Wikidata is an open source development project. The initial development is being performed by a team working at Wikimedia Deutschland in Berlin. In order to facilitate external collaboration, these pages document the current state of the development. For development, we are following scrum, as this also enables to have a visible status report on what is going on in the project.
All discussions and decisions here should be based on the agreed upon requirements listed in Requirements.
