Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Do I have to use emule to download the package b/c I didn't see the directly link for the user.xml? – q0987 Jun 30 '11 at 20:50
@q0987 first of all, I don't know the format of the data dump, but it is not just a "user dataset", there is no mention of a "user dataset" in your link, just a "dataset" (I've edited your question to reflect that) - you should be able to selectively download files with some torrent clients, but it appears to be broken out based on each site, not on the type of data – Daniel DiPaolo Jun 30 '11 at 20:55
@Daniel, the provided torrent seed has no open thread at all and I cannot download those files. – q0987 Jun 30 '11 at 22:08
@q0987 I believe you went to the wrong place. Go here and click the first giant blue download button you see. – Jeff Atwood Jun 30 '11 at 22:25
@Daniel, In fact, I downloaded the correct torrent But when I try to download the files referred by this torrent, there is no available resource that I can use to download. – q0987 Jun 30 '11 at 22:40
The torrent works, I successfully downloaded it earlier this week. My torrent client is always running and is a seed for the past several SO data dumps. – Greg Hewgill Jul 1 '11 at 2:17
