This is a followup on T7689: XML-Import of a page version prior to existing history spoils diff page?
An error during a Special:Import of several pages/revisions leaves any good revisions in the data base that had
been read before the error war detected.
This is imho allright, yet the Error Message: "Import failed: ...(probably for some reason)..."
appears to be misleading or too terse.
Suggestion 1: Add a message: "# pages / # revisions successfully imported."
before the error message.
Suggestion 2: For each page/revision, once it has been successfully imported, display a line resembing the
corresponding entry of the page history. So effectively a content list of the xml records is produced.
Suggestion 3: Both.
T8646: Indicate if an import failed due to revision limit on export
