I'm adding wikipedia stuff to the LDP site. I will definitely pass the
result past you before any publication, to make sure you're happy with
how I've implemented it - since the official "policy" has never been
I hope you know by now I will do everything I reasonably can to make
sure what I do benefits the Wikipedia and doesn't "fork" it in any
meaningful way. I'll be driving traffic to you, for one thing, and
won't do any actual "editing" on my site. Clicking the "Edit this
page" link will do just what it says -- but will take you to the
Wikipedia to do your edits. I think the LDP probably gets a lot more
traffic right now than the Wikipedia does (6 million page views a
month), so that should be a good thing for you.
I do have a problem though, that you can help me with if you will.
It seems the tarball is not being updated regularly. I want to
download and process it regularly, probably weekly. An rsync feed
would be really ideal, because it would minimize the bandwidth
requirements. It's not a problem on my end, but it could be on yours.
But if an rsync feed is not in the cards, at least update the tarball.
Can you get the tarballs updated on a more regular basis? It should
just take a few minutes to write a script and put it in
