    A little bash script to check for mediawiki versions.

    #/bin/bash
    # Mediawiki Version Checker by mutante
    # a little bash script/alias that i use to check for latest mediawiki version,
    # so i dont forget updating anymore (if you want to go extreme put in /etc/profile :))
    # bash chaos for fun, you need "boxes" installed, dont take too serious
    # if there was an RSS feed for version changes i wouldnt need to use this mess :)
