Interwiki bot/Warnfiles

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Warnfiles are generated by mw:Manual:Pywikibot/interwiki.py (part of the Pywikibot robot) and indicate missing "backlinks" in Wikipedia projects.

If you trust the given warnfiles and if they're not too old, use

python warnfile.py warning_wikipedia_xx.log

or if you consider it is old, use

python interwiki.py -warnfile:warning_wikipedia_xx.log.
(preferred, since warnfile.py sometimes removes good edits)
NOTE
Warnfiles older than 4 weeks should be removed.
NOTE
As from the March 2005 release of the Interwikibot, all warnfiles are UTF-8 encoded. If you are running an earlier release, the warnfiles might not run properly. If you experience problems, you should upgrade to the latest (see mw:Manual:Pywikibot/Basic use).
