Summary: Pywikipediabot stopped working on recent checkout
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: 1.15.2
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: blocker
          Priority: Normal
         Component: API

Previous known good configuration with pywikipediabot 2009-11 SVN version of
pywikipediabot now throws following error with recent pywikipediabot SVN
checkout upon attempted login: 

Error downloading data: No JSON object could be decoded
Retrying in 1 minutes...

Dump output: 

need read permission to use this module"}}

I am running this on a local installation and I get the same error on clones of
the system running on Ubuntu 9.04 (Python 2.6.2), Ubuntu 8.04 (Python 2.5.2)
and Mac OS 10.6.2 (Python 2.5.2). 

This error was also present in MW 1.15.1.

Older versions of pywikipediabot work - I'm really glad I saved previous
checkouts! With a rolling development model, there's no way (that I can find)
to get an older known good snapshot....
