I noticed that there is considerable delay between the weekly Wikidata
JSON dump appearing online and the file appearing on the Labs servers
. For example, the 20160502 dump is online right now, but there is
only an empty directory for this date on Labs.
In retrospect, file modification dates on Labs give the appearance that
the files have been around earlier than they seem to be, but they have
not been available at this time last week either. As it is now, it is
faster to download the dump instead of waiting for the file to show up
in the central location, but it's probably not intended that each tool
gets its own copy. For a weekly dump, half a day of delay is significant.
Any ideas (including whom to ask)?

I am Alangi Derick and also d3r1ck on the IRC. I was selected in the GSoC
2016 program and i'm opportune to work on the project titled "Integration
of IFTTT support for Wikidata" and I am very happy to be the first African
GSoCer in Wikimedia Foundation. This is indeed a privilege and I wish to
thank everyone that guided me in this movement to attain this level.
I specially want to thank my mentors (Stephen Laporte, Marius Hoch, Lydia
Pintscher, Benedikt Seidl and Sam Tarling) for helping me before and within
this program. Also I won't forget to thank some very key org admins for
their great help when I just joined the movement (Quim Gil, Brian Wolf,
Andre Klapper), I really thank you all for your help.
I will love to keep working with you all so that I can better shape my
future in Wikimedia and also hope to see you all in person when the time
comes :) and also to all Wikimedia Developers, I shall keep in touch and we
all shall make the movement better in the future.
