review of job title:
There is a perl script, and the goal is to edit it to add internationalization.

Notes on draft perl script

It has an incomplete functionality list containing 1 item. The item is
to read in a list of rss feeds and usernames.

> use strict;
> ...
It imports a handful of perl packages, including:
- mediawiki API
- www client
- perl value dumper
"wabget" is commented out.

> my $mw = MediaWiki::API->new();
> my $wikiURL = 'https://en.wikinews.org'; # /w/api.php';
> $mw->{config}->{api_url} = "$wikiURL/w/api.php";

It's talking with wikinews via the mediawiki perl api. wikinews is a
mediawiki site.

The rest of the script is inside an infinite loop. It runs like a daemon.
