The database is not down no but it's going to be.
As erfgoedbot isn't running anymore, all the changes on the wikip├ędias are
not harvested into the database anymore (eg. in France, since end of June,
we add all the news 2014 protected monuments), so the database is more and
more obsolete everyday and less and less useful :(

Very true but there is a very big number of tools on and around Wikidata.
