Tasks using pywikibot and Wikidata

Let's beign writing simple scripts that can pull data from existing structured or semi-structured sources and put it into Wikidata using the pywikibot API.

Some possible tasks are:

1. Software versions from github

There github releases are available for public viewing in the Github project's Releases page. Even if the project does not use github, they generally clone the project on a github repo which syncs all the commits, branches, tags, and releases. Hence, there is a lot of data on github whih can be used in Wikidata !

Examples with lots of versions: systemd (Q286124), Debian (Q7593), Linus kernel (Q14579)

Possible things to work on:

2. Software versions from FTP

Some organizations like Gnome host all their versions of a application on FTP. This allows us to get a single place from where various versions of different software can be scraped.
