That looks like a bug. Could you please report it in phabricator ( and tag the report with Dumps-Generation? Thanks!

I've recently taken interest in the Wikipedia data dumps. I'd like to
download a subset of files when they are updated. On the Data dumps
page[1] a monitoring file[2] is mentioned, but the file doesn't contain
any data (except the "wiki" object).

I did some research and found the script and some info in the
relevant README [3]. If I've understood it correctly, a server will
periodically run which will create the index.json file.

Is this deployed now? Since the file exists with (very little) content
I'd guess that has been run.
