Some notes about WikiProjects parsing to create machine readable WikiProjects directory. See phab:T172326:

  • Root page is Wikipedia:Wikipedia:WikiProject_Council/Directory.
  • The topics are organized in a hierarchical manner.
  • Each entry either points to a subpage like Music or an anchor on the top level topic line Culture#Arts.
  • In either case, both point to subheadings, which ends in a table listing, containing the list of actual WikiProjects prefixed by WikiProject:
  • A caveat while parsing table listings for that topic is the main listing ... entry, which actually points to some other topic under which the given WikiProject is nested. Hence, the WikiProject can be ignored while generating listings for the current topic.
