I am Chinmay, a GSOC intern at Crowdbio (
Our goal is to create a bot to capture gene info in PBB templates (
wikidata. We will be using Pywikipedia-bot framework. I am confused whether
to go with Trunk or Rewrite branch. I am familiar with the Trunk and have
queried wikidata items using it. On the other hand, there seems to be less
documentation for Rewrite branch. I have installed the Rewrite as package
from latest nightly release but not too familiar with it.
For our bot, we will be having normal functions like creating/updating
items, claims, sources etc.(the Trunk seems sufficient for these
functions). I have started coding with the Trunk but now i am a bit
concerned about the lifetime about Trunk branch. Any chances it may be get
outdated and then i would have to port to Release??
I am also concerned about the pace of development of the Rewrite branch.
From another thread, I have noticed about changes to
editEntity() to create
Should i use the Trunk or Rewrite branch ??
