mwclient accessing page history for dynamic pages
hello bryan i am trying to use mwclient to download full article history for some pages but i can't get mwclient to get the page_title dynamically site = mwclient.site('en.wikipedia.org') page = page.site['string') // i am trying to get something equivalent to page.site('%s') % (variable) or page.site(variable) i am also unsure about how to download the full history, for i am only able to retrieve the revisions using page.revisions() is that possible?

since i have a list of pages to look up (which i obtained from a query), i was actually hoping to get the following working str = cursor.fetchall(query) page = site.Pages[str]
correction to above: cursor.fetchall(query) for p in str: site.pages[p]
The return value of cursor.fetchall() is a tuple, so you should use p.

in other words, I wanted to know if it is possible to obtain the equivalent of a special export of the text and history of page. page.revisions() gives me the history & I was needing to get the text as well
Also I was wondering if anyone could help me find a way to obtain the 'currentstatus' of articles (currenstatus could be FA, GA, GAN etc.), the currentstatus info seems to be accessible only through the text table
