According to your description, this code looks like
the startpoint for a commercial application for
wiki administrators. ;-)
David, Could you create code that:
Verify (for a user selected list of articles) if offline XML Wikitext is
not identical to online XML Wikitext, then download news XMLs,
compress them as gzip and save a file to a folder in writable media?
A more advanced version could just store a diff between these
two XML Wikitext.
Your code could work as a "deliberately slow" mechanism to update
Wikis XML databases.
Notice that Wikipedia have warned against creating applications that
download too many pages in a short time frame.
Many thanks for offering your help for this project!
Have a great good week.
