    Cool. Thanks again for being such a good ‘netizen’ with these dumps.

    I’ve got bandwidth to blow, and have setup an archive page for HTTP downloads of both 7za and tar.bz2 dumps. Enjoy.

    Will we ever see a CC dump of SF and SU?

    The actual 7zipped file says so-export-2009-08.7z, think that should be so-export-2009-09.7z?

    @Farseeker: Not knowing anything factual, I will guarantee that “will we ever..” is going to be answered with “yes”. :)

    @Bremen: Yea, you found a change that has been discussed on Apparently, this was due to a an error and the dumps will soon be automated. Also, the powers that be are going to name the file (from now on ) for the time frame that the snapshot stops on. E.g.: This September release includes data up to midnight 31 August, so it will have an 8 in it’s file name.
