Hello dumps users and re-users!
As you know, some wikis are large enough that we produce dumps of some
files in 6 pieces in parallel. We'll begin doing this for svwiki starting
on July 1. You can follow along on https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T226200
if interested. If you have not previously worked with a wiki large enough
to have files split up, you can look at e.g. frwiki or itwiki dumps to see
what files are produced.
Thanks to Ebonetti90 for the request!
As outlined in https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T226153, we are
planning to change filename scheme for Wikidata RDF entity dumps, by
removing the "-BETA" suffix from the filename. The Wikidata RDF ontology
is not beta anymore and dumps have been working stable for a while now,
so it's time to drop the beta mark from the name. It may take a week or
two for the change to propagate and be applied to dumps, but if your
tools depend on exact naming, please prepare them for the eventual
change in the name.
Note that links like
still be pointing to the right files, and if all you care is downloading
the latest dump, using these links is always recommended.
We will send another message once the change has been implemented and
