Sorry, but I have not yet got the very purpose of this list. Shall it be a documentation page for the conversion from Template:Technique to material used (P186) for humans or for bots? The syntax should anyway be the first step? If it is thought to be for humans shall we create a more clearly arranged table? Best regards, --Marsupium (talk) 11:54, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

The purpose is just to map "technique" values to Wikidata, so that we can import data more easily to Wikidata. It should probably also be used so that translations can be done using Wikidata rather than language-specific subtemplates, but for now, because of bugzilla:47930, we can't really use data from Wikidata in files, so that would not be very useful. In any case, I have a problem with adjectives that are supported by this template but do not seem really compatible with Wikidata. --Zolo (talk) 13:01, 23 October 2013 (UTC)
