Hi Sebastian,

I'm curious where the meta/bibliographic data is
coming from for some of these open content projects. 
Project Gutenberg seems to keep relatively structured
catalog data for its contents, but I'm wondering where
anything other than title would come from for
something like a Wikipedia article.
