Report errors with the newsletter / extracted events


  • Reconstruct every event inferred, even on old dbworld messages that have gone away. This is done by accessing the revision of each surface web file at the last time it was crawled.
  • Then, change the event finding module to first access the previous output file. This is done by passing in an '@' in the config (see other modules that do this to see how to access previous output files). Then, scan through the old file, see what mentions already exists. Then, in the current mention file, copy over old mentions and their events, and infer events from only new mentions.
