@vrandezo @wikidata Interesting idea; probably hard to agree on a property order for certain items: puts “edit war” on another meta level…

@WikiResearch Did you/they evaluate the tool yet? Sounds like a great approach, but challenging to support all languages.

@wikidata Thanks for the explanation. Would you have the link to the Phabricator issue? Interesting problem to solve :-)

@tomayac @wikidata For DBpedia, it’s apparently alphabetically ordered: dbpedia.org/page/Angela_Me…. Thanks for clarifying Wikidata’s logic.

via Echofon in reply to tomayac

@wikidata What’s the logic behind the order in which facts are listed on Wikidata? Not alphabetically, not by increasing property ID…Random?

@RubenVerborgh Guess we agree on .all ;-) I’d have chosen .seq over .race. BTW, do you know github.com/vinniegarcia/p…? Quite elegant code.

@RubenVerborgh Interested to learn your opinion on twitter.com/tomayac/status… Using array.reduce for Promise.seq() doesn’t cover all use cases.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to tomayac from Hamburg, Deutschland

Promises IMHO need Promise.seq() for sequential exec. and Promise.allMax(iterable, n) for parallel—but max. n at a time—exec. support!
