Hi all, ar:User:OsamaK had developed a pywikipedia based bot to collect daily stats and has been running for over 2 years. I had just "translated" it and started running for Tamil wikipedia here. I am now looking ApiSandbox to build queries which will get more data(Bot activity, number of users with atleast 1 edit on the day,anon edits etc) which might be useful to log and keep track on daily basis.let me know if some other parameter might be useful to collect.
Feel free to run this on your Indic wiki project and observe the numbers :) This can help notice sudden spikes on any parameter on day-day basis and help relate to some event (outreach / real world events) Thanks to Osama for the base code, the english version of which is available here. Please feel free to fork and and add to it :)  http://ar.wikipedia.org/wiki/مستخدم:OsamaK/إحصاءات/ديسمبر_2011  http://ta.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Statistics/December_2011  http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:ApiSandbox  http://ta.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:ApiSandbox  https://gist.github.com/b37a1d07888597f7c9ac -- Regards Srikanth.L PS : This entire thing was a by-product of Bala's Doha visit when he interacted with Osama in the Arabic wiki convention and got to know of this. Apparently Bala learnt this from Osama and he learnt about wmf grant process from Bala :)
