sql dump schemata - image.img_description and protected_titles.pt_reason fields should be resized
Closed, DeclinedPublic


0) Context

On 2015-03-11 all *_comment, *_description, and *_reason fields were resized.
Specifically, the data type tinyblob was replaced with varbinary(767).

  1. Problem

As of 2015-06-03, sql dumps still show the wrong size for the following fields:
o image.img_description; and
o protected_titles.pt_reason.

This means that the database schema in the sql dumps (as of 2015-06) does not agree with maintenance/tables.sql (as of 2015-06).

  1. Requested action

Please resize these two fields for future sql dumps.

The dumps represented the current state of the database, so it is possible to have other size or other order of columns due to outstanding database maintenance. This is not a problem in a relation database management system.
