Subject: MediaWiki::DumpFile::Pages::Page should probably have a namespace() method
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 375b
Parse::MediaWikiDump::page had a namespace() method, which was useful. It should probably be implemented in MediaWiki::DumpFile::Pages::Page, too. In Parse::MediaWikiDump each page received a list of namespaces in the constructor. Maybe it would be more flexible to simply give it a reference to the whole dump in the constructor and then call namespaces() on the dump ref.

Leaving off the namespace() method was a conscious decision on my part. Most of the bugs I encountered over the life of maintaining Parse::MediaWikiDump were related to application layer stuff in MediaWiki (exactly such as the namespace method in fact). I've decided to leave application layer stuff out of the MediaWiki::DumpFile API and leave that to another module that understands MediaWiki internals. Tyler

No problem - I can code this myself for my needs, but if there is such a module, could you add a link to it in the POD? Thanks in advance.

If I ever get the time I'll create a MediaWiki::DumpFile::Engine class that does this kind of thing and more (like category relationships) by wrapping ::Pages and ::SQL - I'll leave this ticket open to gather features people want to see in it and so I remember to do it.
