Hello, if you guys are sure the bug was fixed then no problem to wait for next week dump.
But if there is a risk it isn't, then running the dump again today would avoid to lose a few days before a full resolution and ensure that next week dump will be fine.

Hello, can't we try to have a bit of both worlds ? Keep a weekly wikidata dump and have it sync with xml/sql dumps only on the 1st of each month ?
Because, really, having almost 3 weeks with no wikidata dump is a major change.
And this is sad that I seem to be the only one concerned with it.

@ArielGlenn I'm getting confused here. Wikidata dumps are generated every week (well at least the Json dumps are). And you're changing it to be generated only twice a month ?

@ArielGlenn I see. Thanks for the information.
@Nicolastorzec Yes, I don't worry about configuring cron to automatically download the dump whatever the day it is generated. My main concern is having to change my habits for an unclear benefit.

As a json dump consumer, I have a script run by crontab to retrieve each week the latest dump. Usually the download starts on tuesday and I can work with it on wednesday.
Changing when the dumps will be generated means I'll have to keep an eye on the current date just because of this change (everyone always knows which day of the week is today, not that much people know which day of the month it is ..). That makes me wonder what are the use cases where this will makes things easier ?
