Removing EventLogging tables starting in 'zz_' or ending in '_1'
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

EventLogging's database contains tables that look like cruft and didn't get
new data since some time [1]. If no one claims them by 2014-06-23, let's remove
them as they get in the way when trying to sanitize data.

Relayed issue to the analytics and eventlogging-alerts mailing lists:

(Cannot link eventlogging-alerts post as that list is lacking archive: bug 66488)

The deadline set in the list-email has passed.
So let's work towards removing those tables.

Since I lack permissions to delete them myself, I filed RT 7735 to have the
tables deleted.

Tables have been dropped. Thanks Andrew and Sean!
