{{draft task}}In this task, the goal is to compile an authorship list for task descriptions. A pseudocode example (in imperative style) that should accomplish this is as follows:

for each task page
  grab page source, discard everything after the first ==section==.
Cache as $previous. Note $author.
  for each revision
    grab page source, discard everything after first ==section==.
Cache as $previous2. Note $author2
    compare $previous2 to $previous. If different, record $author to $list.
    replace $previous with $previous2
    replace $author with $author2

The following resources for HTTP interface information for MediaWiki may prove to be useful:

  • [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Index.php#Raw https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Index.php#Raw]
  • [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Index.php#History https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Index.php#History]
  • [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API:Main_page https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API:Main_page]

Conversely, some languages have libraries which abstract these interfaces into language-native idioms. Use of these abstractions is perfectly fine.

Please '''DO NOT''' add a full output for ''each'' programming language; just show a representative sample. For an full listing, see [[Rosetta_Code/List_authors_of_task_descriptions/Full_list]].

The pseudocode above is no longer really useful as the page format has changed significantly since this task was written. Rather than checking '''every''' edit to see if it was a change to the task description, we'll just assume the user that created the page is the task author. This isn't 100% accurate; a very few pages got renamed and recreated by someone other than the original author without preserving the history, so they are misreported (15 Puzzle Game for instance,) but is as good as it is likely to get without extensive manual intervention. Subsequent edits to the task description are not credited. As it is, we must still make ''thousands'' of requests and pound the server pretty hard. Checking '''every''' edit would make the task several of orders of magnitude more abusive of the server (and my internet connection.)
