Thank you all for your replies,

I wanted a SPARQL endpoint mainly for linking purposes. However, since the
DBpedia links are already there, it would be nice to have them at DBpedia
too.

DBpedia already has a dedicated repo for external links [1]. It would be
great if you could make a pull request and have them included in the next
static release.

Best,
Dimitris
