Because of the major priority T42009/T47269 (abuse of import feature) I ask to run InitStats maintenance script daily or at least weekly. The updateArticleCount.php script can be started with a cron job. After some imports the statistics page counter at the German Wikivoyage is now at 14.867 instead at about 12.600 ie the count shown is 15 % higher than the real one.
T48981 was only a temporary solution not a permanent one.
After the first update, dcljr made a list of the biggest variations in counts: https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikimedia_News&oldid=11739239#March_2015
