People interested in image dumps may be also interested in my post
relating to the GFDL requirements, which I think mean images need to
be included in the dumps.
"..the [GFDL] license requires that someone can download a
''complete'' Transparent copy for one year after the last Opaque copy
is distributed. As a result, I believe the BoT needs to ensure that
the dumps are available ''and'' that they can be available for one
year after WMF turns of the lights on the core servers (it allows
'agents' to provide this service). As Wikipedia contains images, the
images are required to be included. .."
discussion continues ..
I would like to work with a local copy of a wiktionary and I have the
- the dumps do not provide any files like images or sound;
- is there any way to get them separately? I would need the whole ogg file
for specific wiktionaries
- if not, is it possible to get them from the public wiktionary server? in
that case, I would have to send many thousands of requests to the server:
is it allowed?
Thanks a lot in advance for the answers.
While I was trying to rsync all the dumps available on the mirror site, I noticed that the latest dump available was only made in early October, what happened to the newer dumps made on the Brazilian mirror? Has it stopped following updates from dumps.wikimedia.org?
BTW if anyone of you were following the mirroring XML dumps talk page, I have just sent an email to ask for AARNet to mirror our dumps too. They have about 84TB of space available and is located in Australia. Cross your fingers!
