I use a small software for about 10 years to analyze the article histories based on the stub-meta-history.xml dump files. Beside other statistics, I prepare these regularly updated series of stats on huwiki using this tool:
The software is not under free license nor open source, and was written by a long-time inactive Wikipedia editor-developer. Therefore I cannot check or change the code. I used the software without any problem until the previous dump (in February). When I wanted to generate the new statistics in February, I received an error. I hoped, that this is only a temporary problem, and it will be solved by the next dump, but I have the same problem with the dump from March:
The error message:
Unexpected end of file has occurred. The following elements are not closed: mediawiki. Line 41, position 1. XmlExpection at System.Xml.XmlTextReaderImpl.Throw(Exception e) at System.Xml.XmlTextReaderImpl.Throw(String res, String arg) at System.Xml.XmlTextReaderImpl.ThrowUnclosedElements() at System.Xml.XmlTextReaderImpl.ParseElementContent() at System.Xml.XmlTextReaderImpl.Read() at qcz.Dump.StubMetaHistory.StubMetaHistoryDumpReader.<GetEnumerator>d__1.MoveNext() at qczWikiStat.MainForm.bw_DoWork(Object sender, DoWorkEventArgs e) at System.ComponentModel.BackgroundWorker.WorkerThreadStart(Object argument)"
Did you make any change in the dump structure in the previous months? Is this something, that is possible to solve on the dump side?
