Thanks for the quick reply Dan! I don't want to create any extra work for you or your team. I can use something else for this month.  I would be interested in getting some info on the new format and distribution channels whenever you are ready.

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8"
Hi Gabriel,
My team maintains this dataset.  We have been working on a new version
which will deprecate all other pagecount and pageview datasets.  Release of
this new dataset is imminent.  When we saw the old job failed, we couldn't
fix the problem quickly and have been thinking maybe it isn't worth the
effort since the new data is coming out soon.
However, if you have an immediate need, do let us know.  So, in other
words, if you can wait a week or two and tweak your scripts to work with
the new data, that would probably be best.  Otherwise, let us know and we
can look at the failure more closely.

Apologies if this is the wrong list, but it appears that the page views dumps for september were stalled on the 24th 

and the full month dump (pagecounts-2020-09-views-ge-5-totals.bz2) was not generated,

does anyone know what the situation is?
