Description Brion Vibber 2005-05-18 13:51:18 UTC
The interwiki table for each wiki is necessary for proper processing of interwiki links.
We should include it with the public download dumps; right now this is not included, so refreshLinks will 
insert a lot of bogus brokenlinks entries and default rendering will be wrong.
Comment 1 Stephen Kennedy 2005-12-16 23:17:00 UTC
I would like to propose (and am willing to code) an addition to the
Special:Export feature to deal with this for those who get their content that
way. It would require the addition of interwiki to the siteinfo part of the xml
schema, and some simple additions to the PHP. At the same time I'd add an option
for not exporting the namespaces info, as that data doesn't imho need to be
downloaded with every article!

If there is a willingness to change the XML schema, I'll add this to my todo list.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2006-02-22 21:18:46 UTC
We do now include the interwiki table in public dumps.

(Integrating in the XML dumps would be a separate issue.)
