Description Bovlb 2005-03-19 02:33:34 UTC
A link to a page that is a REDIRECT to a page that contains the stub template does not appear in the stub link colour.
Comment 1 M. Creidieki Crouch 2005-04-26 01:13:27 UTC
Stub color display is determined by the length of the article, I believe, and
not by the stub template.

Regardless, I can confirm this bug.  Links to "Directors Guild of America"
appear in the stub color, under my threshold.  Links to "Director's Guild of
America", which is a redirect to "Directors Guild of America", do not appear in
the stub color.

I would be inclined to say WONTFIX on this one. 

It's easy enough to check if a link will be a redirect and slap the mw-redirect class on it. A bit more work (extra queries?) to check each one of those redirects final targets, see if they're within your threshold, and then change the color.

With two years of inactivity without protest, closing wontfix per Chad H.
