Although this seems to be a quite different functionality at first sight, however the complexity and flexibility of replace.py could be well used for it. (Regexes in content, required and prohibited regexes in title, other exceptions...)
I would like to know two things:
• I want to implement a script to rename pages. Do you agree that implementing this feature within replace.py as an option would the the right approach, or should I create a separated script?
• What is the current procedure to provide patches (for the rewrite branch)? Reading http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Pywikipediabot/Development didn’t solve this doubt of mine. I see there is a Patches section in SourceForge, is that the right place?
