Description Purodha Blissenbach 2006-04-24 14:39:14 UTC
This is a followup on http://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5689

An error during a Special:Import of several pages/revisions leaves any good revisions in the data base that had 
been read before the error war detected.

This is imho allright, yet the Error Message: "Import failed: ...(probably for some reason)..."
appears to be misleading or too terse.

Suggestion 1: Add a message: "# pages / # revisions successfully imported."
before the error message.

Suggestion 2: For each page/revision, once it has been successfully imported, display a line resembing the 
corresponding entry of the page history. So effectively a content list of the xml records is produced.

Suggestion 3: Both.

A line for each revision will get very long very fast - consider importing via XML upload, where you might have many many pages: thousands upon thousands of revs total(!)

Probably #1 is acceptable.
Comment 3 Sumana Harihareswara 2013-02-21 22:43:06 UTC
Is this still happening?
Comment 4 Nemo 2013-02-22 05:56:39 UTC
Yes.
Sumana, you can safely assume than any bug in this component is still valid, whether 1 or 10 years old, unless an indication of the contrary is provided.
