| Add a review of MediaWiki-DumpFile
Easy to use, very useful, and very fast. It can run through the whole single-rev dump file in a few hours on my old laptop(2 GHz macbook pro core duo). One thing that confused me a bit is that the Mediawiki fields often have non-allowed XML (ampersands and semicolons) in them and MediaWiki::Dumpfile handles them just fine, but when I try to write the subset I want back out (and duplicate the XML front matter) it hangs up on those chars if I try to make a second pass. I got around it by using a proper XML writer and then using TreePuller directly.
Nice tool, easy to use and useful.
