How frequently are data dumps going to be released? Is there a policy forming? How about some sort of feed or differential dump? I guess a suitable delay might be in order.

I'd like to automate some of the statistics I do, and some questions can only be answered by looking at changes in two snapshots or with a differential system.

The information is cleverly hidden in plain sight!!

Our plan is to create a new data dump every month, reflecting all data in the system up to that month. We will seed the latest and greatest dump (at a low bitrate) as long as we can, ideally permanently.
