This means some data in the databases should not be displayed any longer.
It regards fields in the tables revision, logging, recentchanges, oldimage and filearchive.
Table entries that should be hidden will not be displayed by the Toolserver database servers.
These entries can be unhidden by the Steward level users of the Wikipedias and are then accessible again.
Some fields are not even shown in the default view because queries on these tables then no longer can use indexes which makes the
databases and queries run very slow.
I put alternative views in place in this case in case you need more fields you'll find slower views with most of the fields (but
Please note that this may change the number of rows and other results of your tools.
If you have any issues with your tools because of this change please let me know.
IIRC, however, the table /names/ are slightly different on the
toolserver; TS's "revision" table matches our "revision_userindex"
table, while our "revision" is on the TS as "revision_alternate" or so.
Either way, this should give you a good idea of what columns are altered.
In which way were they non-conformant? Toolserver data was hiding (most) non-public fields, being very similar to what labs hid (actually, I remember fields hidden in toolserver available in labs, not the other way around). What did you remove?

Amongst other things, several revision deleted fields were available, as
well as a number of suppressed entries.
