Hi all. I'm presently working into it.source after some wondering into other wiki projects. My python knowledge is rather basic; I write python code just for fun, coming from a Fortran touch into 1976, followed by Basic, then dBase3, then a long pause when DOS has been replaced by Windows .... then I riscovered python, and his simple, interactive style of management, and sometimes I play with it. I've some knowledge about HTML and CSS, and a vague and primitive knowledge about XML. I never learned to "think in classes" nor I understood ReGex. I do all what I can with procedures and some string management.
Some weeks ago, my first bot, Utente:Alebot, has been flagged into it.source. All its scripts are listed into http://it.wikisource.org/wiki/Utente:Alebot/Scripts .
My present play is, to read wiki pages with my bot, to find and parse templates with standard data, to translate them into simple XML structures, saving them both into local txt files and into wiki pages. The idea is to build a set of procedures to automatize some wiki data management.
Well, that's all... let's take a look to this community!
PS: as a wikisourcian, I deeply appreciate your idea to use recaptcha! :-)
