The next Wikimedia Developers Summit will be in January 2017. I plan to
hold an unconference session on development of an API for monitoring/stats
for dumps of all sorts. Let's get the discussion going now; what do you
want to see? Note that tis is for the rewrite so you need not be
restricted by how the dumps run now.
