Build simple scraper and write to xml (python&beautifulsoup only)

This project should be written in Python 2.7, using beautifulsoup4 (bs4). Link for the site can be provided on simple request. Please provide your budget and references of previous work.

ATTENTION! This shouldn't require too much coding work with Python and Beautifulsoup. You don't have to provide a user interface etc. Just plain functional code (pay attention to exception handling though). Code should contain comments as well, so I can easy understand what's going on.

I need a scraper for a newssite (no rss), where each news item and the comments on it should be scraped and put in an xml-file (without html-code in it, besides for links and images):

eg here comes the titleJohn Doedatehere comes the content of the article. This example may be improved, but should stay fairly easy to understand :-).

I need one xml-file for every day of scraping.

Also, the profiles of the authors (from newsitems and content) should be stored in a seperate xml-file that reflects the nested structure of the online profile, toghether with the date 'last updated' (is part of the profile). This file should contain no html code whatsoever. This may be appended to one xml file. If a new profile is found, it should be appended to the xml. When a profile is updated, a new profile is added (the old one stays in the xml), that reflects all topics (changed and unchanged) and the new date 'last updated'.

Finally, this script should be able to run once a day and scrape all new newsitems and reactions for the last 24hrs. This means that 1. a chronjob is to be foreseen, but 2. you should find a way to add comments on newsitems from previous days to older files at the right place.

Payment only after completion of full job. Have several other jobs of this type. I'm more interested in a good long term workrelation than in the cheapest bidder.

Milestones and payment per completed milestone also possible off course.
