I primarily wanted to count the relative edit frequency of Wikibooks and wikiversity. I had a suspicion, based only on a visual inspection of the RC feeds, that Wikibooks was attracting approximately three times as many edits as Wikiversity. I ran the feed for a few minutes, and sure enough, my prediction seemed to be about true:
- WB: 16 edits
- WV: 5 edits
My curiosity quickly got the better of me, and I extended the code to count Wikipedia edits as well. After a few minutes of writing (just enough really to type this blog post), here are the counts:
- WB: 19
- WV: 5
- WP: 4056
I like this combination of Perl/POE/Tk, and I can already think of a few things I would like to do with it (assuming I can find accurate documentation I need to make it happen).
