Thanks Ariel!  The dumps are an invaluable resource and I really appreciate you keeping us in the loop.

As mentioned earlier on the xmldatadumps-l, the dumps are running very slow
this month, ince the vslow db hosts they use are also serving live traffic
during a tables migration. Even manual runs of partial jobs would not help
the situation any, so there will be NO SECOND DUMP RUN THIS MONTH. The
March 1 Wikidata run is still in process but it should complete in the next
several days.

With any luck everything will be back to normal in April and we'll be able
to conduct two runs as usual from then on.
