Hello dumps users!
You may have noticed that a number of wikis have had dumps failures on the
flow dumps step. The cause is known (a cleanup of mediawiki core that
didn't carry over to the extension) and these jobs should be fixed up today
Does anyone have an estimate of the current size of the full (all pages,
all revisions) dump for the english Wikipedia? My understanding was that
the full dump was about 10 terabytes as of May 2016, but when I grabbed one
of the 7zip files and decompressed, it came to a full 72 gigabytes. That,
times the 500 odd 7zip files would seem to indicate a 30TB dump or more!
Does anyone know the actual size of the decompressed dump?
