           Summary: Create partial dumps for certain tables (user,
                    ipblocks, etc.)

Currently the database dumps are configured to skip certain tables altogether
due to privacy concerns. For example, the user table is marked private
entirely.

The user table contains a number of columns that are not private (e.g.,
user_id, user_name, user_registration, user_editcount). These should be
publicly dumped.

The same is true for the ipblocks table, which has a lot of columns that can be
safely exposed.

There may be other tables that can be safely exposed, I haven't done a full
audit.
