Currently there are not so many articles and downloading dump once a

changes made to the local copy back to the Wikipedia? Is there any
piece of software that could help?
Don't do that. Synchronizing back is a very difficult task, and you will
find yourself in deep trouble very soon. If you don't do proper
replication conflict resolution, you'll have either junk on your side or
on the Wikipedia side. In the later case, you'll probably get blocked
rather soon, in the other case your users will get frustrated because
their edits don't get through.
