Thanks @ezachte! That helps a lot. I'm using the article count data as part of our monthly metrics, so I want them on an ongoing basis. Happily, I've figured out to use the zipped CSVs so I don't need anything new 😁

@ezachte, @Erik_Zachte (I don't know which is the real one!): I'm working on producing these new metrics for our Board reporting, and I'm trying to get historical monthly data on the article counts for all our projects. This seems really tricky to calculate myself, but I think I can get it from Wikistats instead :)

Neil_P._Quinn_WMF closed T161150: Use native timestamp types in Data Lake edit data (needs Hive 1.2) as Resolved.

This is actually resolved! When I originally filed this, the timestamps were stored in Mediawiki's string format (e.g. 20180514215953), but in June 2017 we started storing in JDBC format (e.g. 2018-05-14 21:59:53.0). This means Hive's date and time functions can now operate on them.

@Pginer-WMF, do you want the Product Analytics team to work on this, T194647, T194648, and T194650? If so, we can definitely consider it although you should note that (1) it may take a few weeks to triage since we're working through a big backlog right now and (2) we'll continue to be very capacity limited until our new data analyst starts, hopefully in 2-3 weeks.

Neil_P._Quinn_WMF added a comment to T184096: Wikidata editing behaviour on Android app.

The calculation kept failing because - I think - of time limits on PAWS; the revert analysis is a bit computationally expensive and took 8 hours when it finally completed successfully; next time we run this one probably needs to invest some time to split it into several shorter timespans.
