Thank you Robert, In fact what I want is a mechanism to evaluate the contribution of every author. What I think now is to compute the word count of every author, then the system could give a score to them. Is there a better way to evaluate the contribution of the authors? Thanks!

Various people, myself included, have experimented with a variety of technical tools for attribution. Simple cases can easily be done automatically; however, given the variety of ways that content can be edited, one can quickly think of types of edits that are difficult for a machine to attribute correctly. As a result, there isn't any universally agreed upon method or tool for doing what you are talking about in all cases. Depending on what you want it for we may be able to suggest a tool that would make a good attempt in most cases. Perhaps you could be more specific about what type of application you have in mind. -Robert Rohde _______________________________________________ Wikitech-l mailing list Wikitech-l <at> lists.wikimedia.org https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikitech-l __________ Information from ESET Smart Security, version of virus signature database 3897 (20090228) __________ The message was checked by ESET Smart Security. http://www.eset.com __________ Information from ESET Smart Security, version of virus signature database 3897 (20090228) __________ The message was checked by ESET Smart Security. http://www.eset.com
