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?
Sorry about bugging the list about it, but can anyone please explain
the reason for not enabling the Interlanguage extension?
See bug 15607 -
I believe that enabling it will be very beneficial for many projects
and many people expressed their support of it. I am not saying that
there are no reasons to not enable it; maybe there is a good reason,
but i don't understand it. I also understand that there are many other
unsolved bugs, but this one seems to have a ready and rather simple
I am only sending it to raise the problem. If you know the answer, you
may comment at the bug page.
Thanks in advance.

I am from Malayalam Wikipedia (ml.wikipedia - user:Praveenp), and my
language is Malayalam. Consider our one big problem.
After the release of Unicode 5.1.0, there are two kind of encoding for
some characters of Malayalam alphabet (because of reverse
compatibility). This cause serious problems in linking, searching etc in
mediawiki software. Currently Windows 7 is the only operating system
which supports Unicode 5.1.0. (? according to my knowledge), but lot of
third-party tools for writing and reading Malayalam supports new
version. And now large quantity of data in Wikimedia projects are in new
version. It is not possible to link, or search titles encoded in
pre-Unicode 5.1.0 from Unicode 5.1.0 or vice versa. Currently one of our
namespace ???????? (Category) also has one such character, so it is
possible to write ???????? as ?????? which renders same as first but
different in encoding. It causes problem in categorization also.
Is it possible to put some unicode equivalence
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unicode_equivalence> in mediawiki
software? We need urgent help.

don't think there are any (failed or successful) weblinked
"pages-meta-history.xml.bz2" or "pages-meta-history.xml.7z" files for
the enwiki on the wikimedia download server. I think there must be a
successful enwiki "pages-meta-history" from 2009 floating around
somewhere, I think that the last successful dump (guessing Sept 2009?)
should always be linked for download. If you have a copy of the latest
successful build of "pages-meta-history" (.bz2 or .7z) for enwiki I'd
appreciate it if you posted a link, thanks

As far as leeches go, this takes the price as far as I am concerned. It
sells scripts to leech any Wikimedia project and all this to have the rating
of a website go up.
Is this the kind of outfit that we act upon .. That is for you to decide..
Just a note to say that I didn't go ahead with my
planned implementation of revision suppression
for all administrators, because Aaron said that he
would rather that I wait until bug 20928. Once that
is fixed, I will again look into deploying single-revision
deletion for administrators.
as title says I need a extension for user do a checklist for some check item
and save in database or show to others
just like this format:
item1------------[mark lable or button]
item2------------[mark lable or button]
item3------------[mark lable or button]
item4------------[mark lable or button]
when user submit and the result can show in result page
I'm new on this list (in fact, it's my first ever list) and am not 100% sure
this is the best place to discuss this, so I'll keep it short. I'm thinking of
a wiki for people in my field for drafts / notes writing, but I'm not sure if
it is practically doable (and I've never developed a wiki before).
I work as a researcher in physics and I often need to work on notes or drafts
for scientific papers with people in different places around the world. Most
physicists / mathematicians write their notes and papers in LaTeX, which needs
to be compiled and can be then viewed with a DVI previewer (all this is open
I was wondering whether there is, or could be, a wiki for academics, students,
and such, in my field which would allow the co-authors of a paper or notes to
work on it online, including compiling and previewing, with all the nice
features wikis usually have (records of changes, etc). Only the members of the
collaboration should have access to the notes / drafts of course, so in this
sense it isn't a true, open, wiki. These are the very basics, but I have a
much more detailed idea in mind that I'm willing to discuss. If this isn't the
place for it, it would be great if you could redirect me to the webpage / list
/ IRC or the people I should talk to, thanks!
