Add editors per country data for non-Wikipedia projects
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

From what is written on https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Analytics/Data_Lake/Edits/Geoeditors/Public, the Geoeditors Monthly dataset is only available for the Wikipedia projects (differents language versions). I looked for but I did not find any task on Phrabricator to ask for the same kind of data for non-Wikipedia projects (Wiktionary, Wikivoyage, Wikisource, etc). Maybe it may not be applicable to all Wikimedia projects but it is for some of them (the ones I have listed).

This is the equivalent of T238365, that cares only about Wikipedia data.

Sorry if one ticket is already for this task.

We're open to discussing this, so please don't take my closing the task as any kind of "final word", @Pamputt, and thank you for raising the issue.

So, in general, this dataset is fairly privacy-sensitive. We made a hard trade-off with what we released so far, and we limited the release to Wikipedia projects on purpose. Basically, unless you make a very good case for why the data should be available (efforts it helps with, like projects to improve community health for example), then we will choose to keep privacy tight.
