As you may know, WMF, WMDE and volunteers are working together on the structured data for Commons
project. We’re currently working on a lot of technical groundwork for
this project. One big part of that is allowing the use of Wikidata’s
items and properties to describe media files on Commons. We call this
feature federation. We have now developed the necessary code for it and
you can try it out on a test system and give feedback.
