Pull requests

If you don't use https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0008/, please at least avoid any line larger than 150 characters, to allow a quick review.

The strategy of this bot is to parse without any tree, so it can treat pages in error but should be careful about nested templates and tags.
