Hi Paul,

I have attached a script from my own wiki which may help you. The scripts shows SQL in python, the dataset, and some things you may want to return. Don't know what you exactly need but the script may save you time ... 

FYI The script is used to build an overview (table) with the issues on my project. The issues (wiki pages) are in the wiki, the overview (all issues with dates and so on) are in mysql database. (BTW I have not added the line _=macro.gettext yet)

Have fun, Robert
