interwiki linkingEdit

Can somebody confirm that interwiki linking should now be done via Wikidata and maybe also change the page to reflect that (see Commons:Categories#Creating a new category)?--Ndevor (talk) 09:47, 10 September 2015 (UTC)

I think the current situation still is that you can use Wikidata for interwiki linking, but without a broad consensus that you should do it. Some actively remove the traditional interwiki links in favor of the Wikidata function while others keep on adding them. IMHO, anyone wanting to achieve more uniformity would have to draft some clear instructions and discuss the issue at the proposal section of village pump. But considering the technical and practical shortcomings of Wikidata, I´m not sure if there´s a majority for any change. --Rudolph Buch (talk) 15:58, 10 September 2015 (UTC)
