Wiki database dump

On Special:Statistics folks can download something claiming to be a full database backup of the Wiki, at the moment this is about 5 MB as 7z archive, unpacked about 230 MB, or 4,299,965 lines in a text editor. Files (images incl. SVGs, videos, OGG audio, etc.) are not included.

IOW, it is too big as forum or HRM attachment and unsuited for GitHub. But it could be a good idea to keep a copy on, maybe updated annually by anybody who cares about it and has whatever rights it takes for uploads. Requesting a fresh dump on the Wiki requires Wiki admin rights, worked for me, the old state before January 26 was June 2017, so now it roughly corresponds to 2.5.10.

I keep a copy in a private part of the server hosting, and it goes into my personal backups.

Image, sadly U+1F44D is rejected as unsupported character by phpBB, even my vintage 2009 Windows 7 can do Unicode 6... Of course I'm cheating and grabbed some promising Windows 10 preview fonts, where another user leaked them. ;-)
