Is page view
statistics (as in stats.grok.se) being imported to the
toolserver and available in a database for quick reference?
A user has made this available in raw form at /mnt/user-store/stats. We
are currently working on making this more official; that'll probably be
announced in a month or two.
Being this user, I can only be glad if this happens :-) And I'll be glad
to help setting this up if I can.
Are you thinking of storing the raw data (something desperately needed,
even though there are a few copies around), or just the formatted data ?
It's not available in the database yet, but
that's something we're
looking at doing. If anyone else has a particular reason to need this
data, it would help if they could describe it, so we can decide how to
format the data, and how detailed it needs to be.
It seems that many people have been working with this data in completely
independent way; Erik Zachte has a set of scripts to reformat it (which
I have used), but several other people have developed their own tools.
It'd be nice to have a common format (better that the current "raw" data).
The interest for this goes beyond the toolserver, so I have just created
a (very short, for now) page on meta.wikipedia.org
to store information
related to these files:
If this information is already available elsewhere and I missed it,
please let me know.
