I find this info useful as I do not need to parse the wikitext to see where an item redirects to (see T143200).

We are low on human resources atm but will try to push this a bit. Hopefully in the following (2-3) months
We had some problems during summer with the switch from http to https in the wikipedia apis and some live clients were broken for some period.
IIRC, when this project started (5 or more years) ago there was a 1 req / sec restriction and we were processing ~130 pages / minute.
This was the reason we chose the OAI + Wikipedia mirror approach
Read api calls. For each page we process we make two calls, one to get the wikitext and another to get the text from the first paragraph of the wiki page (abstract) using the TextExtracts extension.
We need OAI for 2 reasons
(1) to get the update stream (which is solved with RCStream) and also important (2) to have a local Wikipedia mirror where we can exceed to wikimedia api rate limits.

Does RCStream has a plugin that keeps a local Wikipedia copy up to date?

Hi, due to the recent switch in the wikipedia api from http to https DBpedia stopped feeding for 1-2 weeks until we identified & fixed the problem.
Are there any plans for OAI? we certaninly want to keep getting update feeds but we can switch to a new service if we can get a similar api
