Have IABot recognize Google Cache links as archives, and flag them as invalid.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Per https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Bot_requests&oldid=733075784#Convert_dead_Google_Cache_links_to_Wayback_Machine, Google cache links make great archives, but die fast. Instances of Google Cache links should be detected and converted to a more permanent archive.

With the new archive handler, adding this should be easy.

Oops closed the wrong one.

Added the feature. Initial tests are successful.

This function needs more refining before pushing to the test branch.
