devwikiinternal.old, rel13testwiki.old, zh_cnwiki.old
I'm not sure these ones should be deleted. These wikis are 'deleted' in the sense that MediaWiki no longer exposes them to users, however as far as I know the DBs are not typically deleted. These specific tables were used on very old (MW 1.4) sites.

Reedy changed the task status from Open to Stalled.Nov 17 2015, 4:20 PM

Guess we should decide if these should indeed go...

Not sure what devwikiinternal was about, but rel13testwiki sounds as it can definitely go.

Note: Comment updated to reflect the new path for these backups (as dbstore1001 was reimaged)


devwikiinternal and rel13testwiki and last write happened on 2015.
I have taken a mysqldump from those two databases and placed them at:

root@dbstore1001:/srv/backups/tmp/T118764# pwd
root@dbstore1001:/srv/backups/tmp/T118764# ls -lh
total 420K
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 208K May  4 09:45 devwikiinternal.sql
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 212K May  4 09:45 rel13testwiki.sql

@Reedy @MaxSem you guys fine if I go ahead and drop these two?

I'd say so. You've got a backup of the tiny amount of data they apparently hold... So if anyone needs them, we have it :)

Yeah, no way anybody needs these.
