Exactly. And don't forget that Erfgoedbot (the name says it all) is coming
from the Dutch situation, where we don't use WLM as a political instrument
to shame the authorities into ceasing their destruction of local heritage
(as they do in Taiwan and other places). We need to rethink how to help
chapters who are forging their own lists (like Italy and others) while
dreaming up ways we can use Wikidata to improve the set of tools we have
