Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.4, Package name: fuse-wikipediafs-0.4, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

WikipediaFS is a mountable virtual file system that allows to read and
edit articles from Wikipedia (or any Mediawiki-based site) as if they
were real files.

It is thus possible to view and edit articles using your favourite
text-editor. Text-editors tend to be more convenient than a simple
browser form when it comes to editing large texts and they generally
include useful features such as Mediawiki syntax highlighting and
spell checking.

Advanced usage of WikipediaFS includes easy development of scripts and
bots. Programs simply have to deal with normal files because this is
WikipediaFS which takes care of the HTTP layer. For example, it would
be possible to use WikipediaFS to perform a massive content migration
from an existing site to a Mediawiki.


* Reading and editing articles, including subpages.
* User * configuration : add your own Mediawiki.

Log message:
*: Move SUBST_STAGE from post-patch to pre-configure

Performing substitutions during post-patch breaks tools such as mkpatches,
making it very difficult to regenerate correct patches after making changes,
and often leading to substituted string replacements being committed.

- If a write attempt fails, try to log back in once and writing again,
  instead of immediately failing.

- Added a "login-cache-time" option in the config file in order to
  control how long we cache the login session.
- Report mtime for stats of files.
- Report back to the application when a write fails, to prevent data
- Quite a bit of additional debug logging, if you turn debug logging on.

- Made logging more flexible (user.py).

2008-09-17 Mathieu Blondel <mblondel@users.sourceforge.net>

for LDAP/AD authentication. Patch by Matthieu Moy and Hannes H旦rl.
Fixes #1745542.

- Set default cache time if article-cache-time is not present in config.

2007-05-27 Mathieu Blondel <mblondel@users.sourceforge.net>

- Fixed the problem with articles having special characters like & (article.py).
- Made the man page optional in the install process (setup.py).
