completed by: Theo Patt

mentors: Strainu

PyWikibot [1] is a Python-based framework to write bots for MediaWiki. There are currently 2 versions of pywikibot currently used: - version 1.0 (also known as pywikibot-compat) is the legacy version - version 2.0 (also known as pywikibot-core) is a rewrite of the original framework, focusing solely on MediaWiki wikis with an API (version 1.14 or newer) and offering an improved internal architecture. is a script that adds templates that mark articles as "good" or "quality". This task requires that when a quality article template is added, all good article templates are removed. This is necessary to avoid editor confusion. For example:

- {{Link GA|en}}
+ {{Link FA|en}}
