daniel added a comment to T178079: Implement a (conservative) usage aspect deduplicater.

Perhaps this can be implemented directly in the UsageAggregator.

Looking at things like https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File:Vincent_Willem_van_Gogh_110.jpg&action=info it seems like we really should get this done ASAP.

daniel added a comment to T174028: Finalize database schema for MCR content meta-data .

@jcrespo I fully agree to use create&copy instead of altering tables. This has been part of the design all along, altering existing tables when introducing MCR was never the plan. We'll create new tables, copy information, and stop using some fields in the revision table. If we want, we can at some point drop these fields from the revision table. But it's no problem to just have them sitting around.

@eranroz I see no blocker, T151717#3675687 is only relevant for enabling per-property statement usage tracking, which has a separate feature switch. Avoiding X tracking when no statements are used, but only labels and/or sitelinks, would still be very helpful. There is potential for increasing the usage tracking table (because we may track L.de and L.en instead of just X), but I don't expect that increase to be explosive - and it should be offset by a dramatic reduction of inserts into recentchanges. We should have an eye on it, though.
