Yesterday sv:wp reached 1 M articles. The one who did the passing was a
bot generated article of a butterfly

The bot behind this article is Lsjbot who creates articles from the
database  Catalogue of Life
http://www.catalogueoflife.org/services/res/2011AC_26July.zip which
(complemented by other databases) which holds data of around 1.5 million
species. The bot genrates about 5000 new articles per day and has
generated just under 400 000 of the sv:wps million and continues...

The guy who runs he bot is a member of the Swedish chapters board
http://se.wikimedia.org/wiki/Kandidater_2013/Sverker_Johansson and is in
his civil life a University teacher. In this capacity he is also a guest
lecturer at the university of the Phillipines where he stayed the last
couple of months (and the bot was on hold). He is there active in
Cebuano-Wikipedia http://ceb.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unang_Panid and
supporting their local community, and he is now running his bot on their
wikipedia as well as on the Warai-Warai Wikipedia
http://war.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syahan_nga_Pakli. So perhaps at the end of
the year these two language versions will also pass the 1 million mark!

PS out other major botgenerating effort of all lakes in Sweden is also
making very nice progress, done 25% of all DS
