Description Quentinv57 2014-01-20 23:04:40 UTC
Hi!

Some of the feeds are displayed in the local language. It makes it nearly impossible for bots to parse informations. Moreover, every time the MediaWiki system messages change, RegExps need to be changed.

To solve this problem, I propose that IRC bot writes every feed in a fixed and universal language. If it hurst, some new channels may be created specifically for bots to get information.

Many thanks for your assistance !

Regards,
Quentinv57

I agree, it's hard to parse.

You're supposed to fetch the relevant message.

Why make it harder than it needs to be? Simple is better than complex.

Simple is leaving it as it is.

@Nemo : Thanks for your answer. What do you mean exactly by fetching the relevant message ?

If you have an easy solution for me to solve the problem on my own, I'll be happy to do it myself.

See https://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/IRCBot-Messages
In the meanwhile, I'm closing this WONTFIX: the old IRC system has been frozen for at least 2 years now to avoid disruption and it won't be changed. Current work is on [[mw:Requests for comment/Publishing the RecentChanges feed]].
