Pywikibot does not work on closed WMF wikis
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

It should be possible to access closed WMF wikis. The pywikibot family files prevent this, and result in errors when attempting to instantiate a Site for a closed wiki.

At least read API calls should be possible, and write actions depending on user-rights. e.g. stewards have edit rights.
