Description Umherirrender 2010-04-18 15:42:09 UTC
r19631 changed the logtitle from $wgTitle to the old username. User renaming before this revision are list under 'Special:Renameuser' (see url).

Please create a script to migrate these log entries to the username. Thanks.

Please give a hint, when there is need for a new request to do this on all WMF wikis. Thanks.

In the log dump from de.wp I have found 8 entries with a empty action and type, but logtitle=Spezial:Renameuser ('Spezial' is localize 'Special'). Maybe it can change by the way. (ids: 147479, 148176, 148177, 148889, 153335, 153336, 154632, 160549)

Suggesting WONTFIX for this one.

When is introduced, the log format will change again, but with minimal impact for old log entries.
Comment 2 Umherirrender 2012-05-25 14:20:33 UTC
The problem is, that you does not find the very old log entries, because there are list under logtitle=Special:Renameuser. That problem cannot handle by the LogFormatter because the query does not select that entries.
