This package includes the MVS client and the WWW::Mediawiki::Client perl
library implementing the functionality in MVS. WWW::Mediawiki::Client provides
a very simple CVS-like interface for viewing, staying in sync with, and
editing pages in websites that run Mediawiki software. In particular, the
software is extremely useful for editing pages in Wikipedia or other Wikimedia
MVS is a command line client whose purpose is to simplify offline editing of
Wiki content.  It allows you to get any number of pages from a given Mediawiki
site, edit the pages with any editor, get and merge any concurrent updates of
the pages, and then safely commit the users own changes back to the version of
the page on the server.
