THIS IS SO USEFUL!
For grantmaking, this is the exact type of dataset we want to have publicly
available. A lot of the initiatives we fund are at a country-based level,
and our partners have a really hard time understanding the effects of the
work they are doing on the aggregate language-wiki level. In addition to
this edits per country, it would be even more important for us to get the
total number of editors / active editors by country as well. Kevin - it
would be great to get an update from on the timeline for this (in Q4
2014-15, it was punted to Q1 2014-15, but I haven't heard anything about it
Thanks for starting this work, Yuvi!

this sounds like very interesting data to look at. Here are my thoughts:
- the Anonymization scheme sounds reasonable, and
I'd like to hear from
someone else @ wikimedia who has similar experience anonymizing data sets
Glad to hear that!
- you were probably already thinking about it,
but we need documentation
too: a wikipage with the name of the table, data dictionary, etc... and
a blog post to announce the newly available data.
Oh yeah, definitely. Will come once the code, etc is done :)
