wikiscript - Open Data Scripts for Wikipedia in Ruby e.g. World Cup 2014 Squads

Hello, I've created a new GitHub org, that is, wikiscript, that collects (Ruby) scripts that let you turn free-style or semi-structured wiki text into open structured data. A first example is the new football squads reader that reads in a wikitext page and outputs all squads files in the football.db format - so you get an up-to-date World Cup 2014 squads list including all 736 player (32 teams x 23 players). (By the way, three days to kick-off and counting!) Cheers.
