I'm trying to use the Mediawiki API to get information about revisions
to a given page. I understand that it is possible to get the entire
contents of a given revision. However I would like to know if it is
possible to only get the diffs introduced in a given revision? This
would result in a reduced bandwidth consumption.
My goal is to get the most frequently used terms in a set of revisions
to a given page. For instance, for the web page Wikipedia what were
the most common terms in all revisions between 2007-09 and 2007-11.
Thanks in advance for any comments on this issue,
