[Migrated] AWB Request from Wikisource.- Regex block move.
Open, HighPublic

Description

Recently over on Wikisource I had the issue of 're-aligning' a number of pages where the underlying File: had been moved and the Index: and Pages: needed to be re-aligned. (see my Recent contirbutions on that project for the manual effort.)

Would it be possible for AWB to implement a feature which would allow for a list of pages to be Moved based on a specified pattern?
(I will note here that this would be something like this might need to be admin only if implemented for high traffic projects though.)

I posted some more thoughts here: Generic re-titler for Index: namespace (aka Special:Move-work)

This seemed a good match for AWB's capablities.

I will also note that AWB currently doesn't recognise that I can move pages on Wikisource, albiet I'm not an admin equivalent there ( I assume this is by design to prevent page move vandalism.)

Alternatively would an AWB developer/contibrutor be willing to open discussions with the Wikisource Community about a customised AWB version which would help assist with large scale cleanup tasks at Wikisource.
