ModWiki patch for Sage

Hey Alex, thanks alot for the ModWiki patch for Sage! i just installed Sage, and the I noticed it didn't support ModWiki. I briefly considered writing a patch myself (although I probably wouldn't have), and I visit the Sage mailing list to check the archives for advice – instead finding your Sep 3 patch! Btw can I get a copy of your sage-alternative.css file?

For others: Sage is a great mozilla-based UpdateCollector (umm, that's my weird lingo for "aggregator"). Try it out!! Since the Sage maintainers haven't yet merged in Alex's ModWiki patch, you can get a patched version of Sage here: (download that file, then open it locally with mozilla; it should then try to install; I'm using mozilla-firefox 0.9.3).

(p.s. Alex, the above patched version also shows the History links, rather than just the diff links)

Very cool. I installed your version, now. :)

The alternate style sheet is just for experimentation and is not usable.
