Thanks, Peter. I do know that Ed based his code on a UK or EU version. As for the IP addresses, those are stored in the WP versioning - is the issue that it points out the location based on the IP? (Which anyone could look up, but this makes it more obvious.)

The subject also sparked a current thread on wikitech-l [1] about
whether or not is appropriate to publish IP addresses for anonymous

There is a new service developed by Ed Summers (@edsu) that tweets
edits made anonymously from the US Congress' IP range. The twitter

may give, over time, a picture of how Washington-related information
gets updated in WP.
