Hi, 
is it possible to convert an mediawiki xml dump to slob?
It used to be possible with the .aard files.
It'd be way more comfortable and than scraping the wiki.

Not really. Old aarddcit used this approach (using mwlib), but it could never reach 100% fidelity, and with introduction of Lua templates and moving info table data from templates to database made it completely non-viable.
