The current dump
contains duplicate pages. In particular, "Total Nonstop Action" and "Ida de Grey" appear twice.
Is this going to be fixed or should we assume that there might be duplicated pages in the dump? This never happened to us before.
Last year I was provided very kindly with a list of all svg-files on
commons, that is their then *real* http(s)-paths. (Either by John
phoenixoverride(a)gmail.com or by Ariel T. Glenn aglenn(a)wikimedia.org
Could I get a current version of this dump, please? (With the real paths
and really existing files.)
Back then the dump was
as far as I remember.
(Someone told me I could create such a dump myself with some wiki-tools.
Is this really possible?)
I sent this same message twice, but it didn't show up. Sorry, if it's
still appearing twice maybe.
Not sure if this is in the dumps email list domain or the lab domain. The
enwiki dumps for this month are not showing up in lab's dumps directory.
This was brought to my attention by another use trying to use the dump file.
I have a related question.
Last week I looked for full xml dumps of huwiki from 2013.
* dumps.wikimedia.org provides dumps back to 2015-07-02 now
( https://dumps.wikimedia.org/huwiki/20150702/ )
* in Internet Archive there is a gap between 2012-06-13 and 2014-07-27
( https://archive.org/download/huwiki20120613 )
( https://archive.org/download/huwiki-20140727 )
Do you know any source where I could download dumps from this period?
Or did we loose them forever?

Fallback is: cable up the old 1GB nic (Chris has done this and set up the
port), PXE install on that, move to 10gb NIC once we're back up. Gross but
it gets the job done.
Set for tomorrow (Friday) 1 to 4 pm UTC, this time should be much smoother.
Same caveats apply as before.

I've turned on 'checkpointing' for the following wikis: eswiki, itwiki,
This means that, as for enwiki and now dewiki, smaller and more files will
be produced with page content. See
https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/274730/ for the changeset.
I've done this for two reasons: first, the files were getting large, and
second, recovery from failure in those steps will now be quicker and easier
for those wikis.
Dataset1001, the host which serves dumps and other datasets to the public,
as well as providing access to various datasets directly on stats100x, will
be unavailable tomorrow for an upgrade to jessie. While I don't expect to
need nearly 3 hours for the upgrade, better safe than sorry. In the
meantime all files will be accessible via ms1001.wikimedia.org via the web,
and all dumps and page view files from our mirrors as well.
Thanks for your understanding.
