I committed a small extension to category.py. When moving categories, with
-hist it creates a wikitable to the talk page of the new category that
lists the edit history of the old category to be deleted.
See the example at
(The table is from getVersionHistoryTable() just as is.)
It is good for respecting the copyrights and is in some way similar what we
do when moving a page from Wikipedia to a sister project without proper
export-import. And it is more verbose than just listing authors in edit
This behaviour needs now the explicite command line parameter -hist because
I would like to hear your opinions. If you agree, the extra parameter could
be removed and this behaviour made default.
(Unfortunately, I am not familiar with i18n support yet, so this has an
old-style translation dict at the moment. I will transform it later.)
I would like to get an SVN access and some help to start.
I need it mainly for inserting and maintaining TOCbot that is under
preparation (it has worked in huwiki for several months and is now being

public. It will soon be published for test and may need much care in the
I would also like to take part in maintenance of replace.py for what I
worked a lot already.
At the moment I am interested only in trunk version.
My SF page: http://sourceforge.net/users/binbot/ -- I don't know how to list
all my contributions, here appears a part of them since May 22, but there
are much more. I have also been active on mailing list in the past years.
Please support and give me technical help to use the system.
I know there is a page generator for generating a list of recent
changes, but AFAIK it is limited to 5000 edits. What if I need to
generate a list of pages that have been created or changed over the
past week? I thought of using the AllPagesPageGenerator and executing
editTime() on each page, but this method gives me only zeros if the
page was not read before (e.g. I have to call page.get() first in
order for editTime() to work properly). Is there any edit-time-related
piece of information I can get from a generated list of pages? Or
maybe there is another page generator suitable for me?
