I recently set up a MediaWiki (http://server.bluewatersys.com/w90n740/)
and I need to extra the content from it and convert it into LaTeX
syntax for printed documentation. I have googled for a suitable OSS
solution but nothing was apparent.
I would prefer a script written in Python, but any recommendations
would be very welcome.
Do you know of anything suitable?
today we came over 10k HTTP requests per second (even with inter-squid
traffic eliminated). Especially thanks to Mark and Tim, who've been
improving our caching, as well as doing lots of other work, and
achieved incredible results (while I was slacking). Really, thanks!
I've put together an extension for rating articles if anyone is
interested. It's just a first version and hasn't been tested much, but
the details can be found here:
You can see an example here on our development server:

of the page for the checkmarks.
I'd appreciate feedback if anyone has any. If someone wants to add
this to extensions in svn, that'd be great.
As you might or might not know, the Commons Picture of the Year 2006
 is running. We have also made an archive , which we want to be
available as a zip download. This archive contains all Featured
Pictures of 2006 and their licensing and description. This archive is
550 MB big. Would it be possible to have it hosted on

One problem I seem to run into over and over again while working with
data from our projects is invalid UTF-8 sequences that litter our
output. I could go on about how doing this is a horrible offense
against man, but my main concern is to simply get around these issues
in my own code.
Does anyone have a document describing places where we're known to
emit malformed unicode?
Tonight I encountered it in the file history output for a query.php request.
You can see it on the site proper at:
Simply striping the bad characters on the serialized output frightens
me because I worry that eventually I'll strip an adjacent delimiter
and make the output unparsable. It would at least be useful to know
all the places I could expect to find junk like this. :)

is there any reason why wfSajaxSearch is casesensitive and limited to
namespace 0? I just wondered if I can get this nifty feature to show me the
same results as the normal search without hacking core-code or using runkit
functions to redefine wfSajaxSearch?

Even though $wgLogo is setup correctly, the images fail to render on the
default page with no user logged in. When you switch to a login
panel or some other panel other than main display, the images then show
up properly. They disappear completely when either logged out
or when sitting on a main page for editing.
