Great, so the two are now linked! But crap + crap just equals crap x2!

 Those of you who have an interest in
 Wikispecies, or Wikidata (two
 projects hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation, who also host
 might like to know that the two projects are now linked. For
 overview, see;
 This is the first stage of their integration; the second
 will allow
 Wikispecies to pull data from Wikidata onto its pages.
 What happens after that is still being discussed, but
 there is potential for all the data to be migrated to
 Wikidata (where
 a lot of it is currently duplicated), and for Wikidata to be
 a front
 end to view or edit that data.
