I'll upload the script as soon as I'm finished fixing the Q pages, and post usage instructions.
By the way, if a hottip appears in a !! headline, switching it to note makes it look ridiculous to me; labelnote:* looks way better.
Edit: Q is done.
The script I mentioned above can be found here
. I tested it on Debian Linux, but it should work on every system that has Perl
1. Download the pages list and save on disk.
2. Call the script like this: perl pagelist2wikipages <prefix> <filename>.
This gives you a number of files called prefixA to prefixZ, which contain the wicks for all pages in the list that start with the given letter. The wicks are sorted alphabetically with regard to the page name; if more than one wick with a given page exists, these pages are then sorted alphabetically according to namespace.
As a last step, create wiki pages and copy the context into them; just open each created file in a text editor and use copy&paste (I didn't automate this because I am too lazy to try and work around the wiki's protection system, and it's just at most 26 pages anyway).
Example: I downloaded the list for the hottip pages into hottips.html. Then I called the script as follows:
perl pagelist2wikipages HottipCleanup hottip.html
This generated 26 text files names HottipCleanupA to HottipCleanupZ.
Edit: Did X as well.
