Nemo is referring to the being broken on MediaWiki versions above 1.20, and it should not actually affect older MediaWiki versions.

You can safely continue with your grab. :)

      Status: Fixed

So does that mean this problem that "It's completely broken" is now fixed? I'm running a huge download of 64K+ page titles, and am now using the "r806" version of The first 35K+ page titles were downloaded with an older version). Both versions sure seem to be downloading MORE than 500 pages per namespace, but I'm not sure, since I don't know how you can tell if you are getting them all...

So is it fixed or not?

It will download only a fraction of the wiki, 500 pages at most per namespace.
