Add page protection status to MediaWiki history tables
Open, HighPublic

Description

One aspect around effects on contributions that is often overlooked is page protection (see Hill & Shaw "Page Protection: Another Missing Dimension of Wikipedia Research", 2015). From my reading of the current version of the page history schema, page protection is not part of the dataset.

As Analytics is working on making the MediaWiki history tables publicly available (T208612) it could be useful to also have this information readily available in the Data Lake and exported together with the rest of the data.
