Merge some local accounts of User:José_Galindo into User:Coroneldelnorte
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

This user has contacted me to know if I could manually merge via UserMerge José Galindo into CoroneldelNorte. Considering the low edit counts and that only few accounts do have edits... I was wondering if there are problems if I use local UserMerge on the wikis this user has edits only.

Comments?

Low edit count doesn't really matter as it still has to scan the entire table in places where there is no index. And aside from that, ever since we did the last push towards GlobalUserMerge (two years ago...), new code has been written that won't work with even local wiki UserMerge by assuming that user ids don't change.

Thanks, I'll inform the user accordingly. Hopefully one day we'll have proper usermerge support for Wikimedia (T156584).
