I was wondering on the order/sorting of revisions
pages-meta-history dumps, especially with respect to the namespaces.
Does the order of revisions in the dumps account for namespaces (e.g.
are revisions from the Template namespace located towards the end of
the dump?) or is the order bound to any other parameter which
potentially influences the location of revisions from certain
I’m currently processing the (March 2013) dewiki dump.
Pages are dumped by ascending page order, and within those the revisions
are by ascending revision id or timestamp, depending on how lucky you
are. Page titles and namespaces don't play any role in this.
