    Hi devs,

    Answering my own question :-)

    It only seems to overwrite articles with matching names. Not so
    dangerous as overwriting all articles!

    Maybe that label could be changed to:

    Overwrite matching articles? Yes No

    Cheers!

    It should be renamed.

    Holman, who implemented this feature, is away this week, hence the lack of
    more authoritative answers.

    Overall, this feature needs to be improved. Please feel free to expand the
    wiki.
