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 websites. 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.
