The #7 issue on git-mediawiki's issue tracker [1] states that the ability to
preview content without pushing would be a nice thing to have.

changes from v6:
  - Rewrite of bin-wrapper/git in 3/7
  - Update and make bin-wrappers chainable it
    removes the need for a GPLEXTEA since we only have to first
    define GITPERLLIB, the bin-wrappers will no longer overwrite
    it. (2/7)
    Maybe we should apply the same mechanism to all variables in ? (there is no need for it right now though)
  - Replace the symlink created in the test suite (if git-remote-mediawiki
    was not installed) by the new bin-wrapper introduced in 3/4 (4/7).
  - Small typos in the commit messages

changes from v5:
  - Move git bin-wrapper 'git' into bin-wrapper/
  - Updates its GIT_ROOT_DIR accordingly
  - Updates the Makefile to use that new path in the comments

changes from v4:
  - Rebase on latest master
  - Typos in commits messages and code
  - Comments in Makefile
  - Factoring the conversion from relatives links to absolute ones in
    `git mw preview`
  - Updating that "conversion" mechanism to not convert links with an
    anchor '#'.
  - git-mw should be executable now.

changes from v3:
  - Rewrite all commit messages.
  - No more "\ No newline at end of file".
  - Rename into (so it moves
    into Git/
  - Remove from the Makefile the copy_pm target (see below 'Add a bin-wrapper').
  - Use of 'install' insted of 'cp' in the Makefile.
  - Comment on the install_pm target in the Makefile.
  - Add a bin-wrapper for git to test scripts without 'make install'-ing them.
  - Move verbose option handling from previous v3-4/4 (introduction of preview
        tool) into v4-4/5 (introduction of git-mw).
  - Refactor some code into subroutines to clean the global 'preview'
  - Rewrite some error messages to make them more concise while still giving
    the same amount of information.
  - Use 'remote.${remote_name}.mwIDcontent' instead of 'mediawiki.IDContent'
    as config item for the lookup ID used to combine template + new content.
  - Remove comments about what's going on in the preview subroutine.
  - Use 'clean_filename' (and not 'smudge_filename') in the preview tool to find
    the correct mediawiki page name based on a filename.
  - Remove space/tab mixup in the 'help' subroutine.

changes from v2:
  - Add a way to test, without installation, code that uses
  - Move more constants to
  - Remove the encapsulation of Git::config calls into a git_cmd_try one.
  - Remove the --blob option, distinction between files and blobs is now 
  - Add a --verbose option to output more information on what's going on.
  - Rewrote the doc and the commit message.
  - Rewrote of the template retrieving code (see 'get_template' sub).
  - Use a configuration variable to define the content ID search in the
    template. Default value set as 'bodyContent' since it seems more standard
    than 'mw-content-text'.
  - Final content is now saved as utf-8 to solve encoding issues.
  - Perlcritic changes: 
    - Update for loops style to a more perlish one.
    - All 'print's specify their output streams.
    --> Same useless warnings left in git-remote-mediawiki.perl after 
        work and git-mw.perl after this patch :) .

changes from v1:
  - add new package GitMediawiki
    - move some of git-remote-mediawiki functions into the package
    - update git-remote-mediawiki to use those "moved" functions
    - add a hacky-way to install it in the Makefile
    - use it in the new git mw tool
  - add a way to give to the preview tool blobs as argument
  - add a fallback when the upstream's branch remote is not a mediawiki remote
  - update the `autoload` option to use `git web--browse` and not `xdg-open`
  - update the way we find the upstream's branch remote name
