You mentioned "a while back" for "apcontinue", show recent was it?
generator is attempting to archive all sorts of versions of MediaWiki, or so
unless we write a backward compatibility handler in the script itself.
Any wiki running version 1.19, or a 1.20 snapshot from before
mid-July, would be returning the old parameter. If you do it right,
though, there's little you have to do. Just use whichever keys are
given you inside the <query-continue> node. Even with your regular
expression mess, just capture which key is given as well as the value
and use it as the key for your params dict.
Thank you again for your useful suggestions!
However, as already noted,
any info about supported releases.
P.s.: Small unreliable "temporary" things in MediaWiki, like the
"powered by MediaWiki" sentence we grep for, are usually the most
permanent ones, although I don't like it.
