We can also use weboob with  webcontentedit to automatize publishing on the 
wiki, something like

$ xidel --html Edwin_Mons_Application_2011.html --css "#mw-content-text" |
  pandoc --from html --to mediawiki |
  webcontentedit edit Edwin_Mons_Application_2011

Add curl or wget to the game, and I think we can make a script to handle this 
not too badly, we can fix issues after by hand.

I'm too busy right now to work on a script, but it should not be really 
complicated to do.
