Description Purodha Blissenbach 2007-01-07 00:33:05 UTC
1) Atßtik
we have a page to which a line is added daily by a cron job,
the version of the time in question can be found at

Basically, the data is taken from Special:Statistics,
the remaining bloat is of no concern here.

2) The Special:Statistics page showed a
wrong image count until 2007-jan-06, see bug #6119.
With the correction of this count some others were affected, 
too - you can see that from
where the article count magically increases by much more than 
the additions of that day, while the edit count decreases by 
8572 despite likely 100+ edits of the day, it drops below the 
current revision ids by about 1300, as these edits show:

3) The true edit count inho has to be equal to the highest 
revision id. Since it is not, in the Ripuarian Wikipedia after 
the Special:Statistics page was updated, I assume that the 
server script updating the statistic data, likely does not 
count edits of deleted pages, or something the like, while the 
routine performing the life update of statistics does. (Just 
an educated guess)

You're right; the maintenance script ignored deleted edits. This was fixed in
