When list=allusers is used with auactiveusers, a property 'recenteditcount'
is returned in the result. In bug 67301 it was pointed out that this
property is including various other logged actions, and so should really be
named something like "recentactions".
Gerrit change 130093, merged today, adds the "recentactions" result
property. "recenteditcount" is also returned for backwards compatability,
but will be removed at some point during the MediaWiki 1.25 development
Any clients using this property should be updated to use the new property
name. The new property will be available on WMF wikis with 1.24wmf12, see
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki_1.24/Roadmap for the schedule.

I am trying to adapt a program that searches and fetches pages from the
main US Wikipedia to do the same against a private MediaWiki installation.
The program is written using the wikipedia python library
Unfortunately, I cannot figure out how to get the library to "point" at
other Mediawikis than the Wikipedia ones.
Can anyone either
a) show me how to change the target endpoint with this library or
b) point me to another Python library where I can do the same
c) provide me with an URL to a publicly accessible non-Wikipedia Mediawiki
site with API that I can use to test the results of a/b?
Any help will be much appreciated.
I'm trying to generate 10 random articles in Hebrew using this request:
As you can see, I'd like to get their intro, but some of the articles'
intro is empty in the API response, even though it's not empty in Wikipedia
I have tried to make the same request in English, and I the problem didn't
This is the first time I encounter this weird problem after making this
request in my App for over a year... Am I missing something? Is there any
new information that I should add to the request or it's just a bug?
