Description Purodha Blissenbach 2006-04-03 17:10:52 UTC
A new ripuarian wikipedia has been set up on 3-24-2006, language code is KSH.

There is a test wikipedia at [],
the 3200+ Articles and several 100 Pages in other name spaces are to be transferred,
including their edit history.

This can be done by XML Export, a simple filter adjusting user data to the target,
and XML Import.led.

Unfortunately, says, that XML Import was disabled.
We suggest to enable it - at least for a time of the data transfer.

Is there a chance to have this done any time soon?
Being unable to import completely blocks the ksh.wikipdia at the moment.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2006-04-21 20:28:00 UTC
If you won't provide us with the data file, and you won't put forward a user
who should have import privileges assigned, nothing's going to happen. :)
Comment 3 Miss van der Roehe 2006-04-21 22:21:23 UTC
Import privileges should go to all sysops. Currently, there is only one, see http://

Which data file?
The data to be imported? Thousands of records, see raw exported data of test wiki at
Too much to be uploaded here, would it not be?

Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2006-04-21 22:31:33 UTC
Set for user 'Purodha'. Let us know when import is complete or if 
you have any problems.
Comment 5 Purodha Blissenbach 2006-04-22 21:45:49 UTC
Indeed a problem showed up, see
It seems not to be a big hindrance at the moment.
