Make content of Special:IndexPages up-to-date and available to wikicode

  • Problem: 1. The content of Special:IndexPages (eg. s:pl:Special:IndexPages) is not updated after changing status of some pages in an index page until the appropriate index page is purged. 2. The data from this page is not available to wikicode. Its availability would make possible creation of various statistics / sortable lists or graphic tools showing the status of index pages by users. In plwikisource, we make this data available to wikicode via bot which updates specific teplates regularily; these extra edits would be able to be avoided.
  • Who would benefit: All wikisources, mainly those with large number of indexes
  • Proposed solution: Make per-index numbers of pages with various statuses from Special:IndexPages available via mechanism like a magic function, a LUA function or something similar.
