Can you please update the database only handly?
I don't think that Wikipedia lists change a lot, so we don't get much updating it (daily?) with cron.
I think that it is better to have "old" data in the map, that break the database and have a map without a monument.
It’s actually the other way around. In both incidents, I had started a manual update (following hot config changes) that turned out to be clashing with the long-running job − so, yeah, completely my fault, but obviously I won’t be doing that again.
