I've saved XML dumps for about 50k wikis ;) but the import part is another
story: way trickier and not very well documented. Last time it was tried on a
WMF wiki (wikitech -> labsconsole merge) the results have not been outstanding,
in particular all logs got lost. Main documentation is at [[m:Data dumps/Tools
for importing]].
