Whats the problem?:
I recently had a requirement to purge a number of pages using a specfic module and template at Wikitionary.
The releavant template/module being :-
The reason for the mass purges
which had a considerably number of entries which would be problematic to purge or null edit indvidually by hand.
I was advised that this could be done using PAWS
The paws command line used was
pwb.py touch -lang:en -family:wiktionary -transcludes:"th-pron" -purge
which ran, but eventually timed out, long before the desired task had been completed.
Task would run to completion, provided the relevant PAWS terminal window remained open.
Task ran until seemingly 'timed-out' after which no output appeared in the respective terminal window, without an indication that the task had actually completed.
Provide an option in PAWS, or PyWikibot for an 'unattended' mode, where once the desired command is submitted, the relevant terminal window from which the command has been entered does not need to remain open indefinitely (or can be closed by the user iniating the command concerned) , with an appropriate e-mail notification being generated when the relevant task requested has been completed.
