Hi again,

Thanks to Anirudh for giving me the help-needed template. One wikipedian has
reached out and helped:

Hi Nikhilsheth - I've created this tool for you at
[1]<http://toolserver.org/%7Edcoetzee/permalinks/>.
Leave a message on my talk
page<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Dcoetzee>if you want any
changes.

Link to tool: http://toolserver.org/~dcoetzee/permalinks/

It does the basic job, but now I'm getting greedy for more ;)
AshLin, amazing work over the last week on
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:AshLin/Work_list ! Now, do we need a
specific format in which to have the revision numbers? You've created tables
on the worklist, so is that the way forward? Then we can ask Dcoetzee to
parse the output in a way we need to.

And I feel that there should be a full-fledged project (worldwide, not just
pertaining to indian articles) going on for Wikipedia for Schools, with a
well-structured list of ALL articles that are going in. Not being able to
find anything. Can anyone help in how to go about getting one set up?


Cheers,
