I have looked into the code a bit and have a few starting problems.
Perhaps you can write a small howto about generating the files for the

- Which base files use the wikireader for converting => XML Datadump?
- How works the converting process where i have to store the data?
- Is it possible to use only one file for converting?
	* so it's possible to generate own content - not a wiki.

For me it would be very helpful so i can concentrate on the parser and
can test it directly.

Perhaps you can describe the process to convert Wikipedia XY into the
wiki.dat format and describe how own content can be integrated. From the
git checkout to a working wikipedia XY.

with kind regards
