1) DB Dump for August 2007:
Why isn't there a static dump for the english section
( The en directory is
simply not here, but it is present for the April snapshot)
1a) In general if I wanted to take a more recent snapshot, and from that
generate the static dump for personal use, where would I start? Is that
process documented anywhere? How does the foundation do it?
2) The recent file changes only seems to display the last 500 changes
regardless of the time frame set. That seems rather limiting. I've tried
tweaking the URL to show more than 500 but it won't -- I pretty much
need a a list of every change from the date of the dump to the
present... What are my options?
Thanks in advance,
Download enwiki-*-page.sql.gz and filter the pages with page_touched
newer than the last date. This will not only lists pages edited, but
also those indirectly changed via templates.
