I think this in particular is an issue for Wikibooks, as there have been a huge
number of changes to MediaWiki software, and en.wikibook has been moved around
to several places with unfortunately general neglect on the part of Wikibooks
participants as well.
One minor problem is that there are a fairly large number of pages on Wikibooks
that are simply inconsistant and simply weird that they even exist. I am using
the example of the broken redirects to give an example of this:
Note in particular the page named "Wikipedia: Fool's Mate"
In this case, it would be normally a page that would be impossible to create on
Wikibooks, but because it was started before the implementation of namespaces it
has been cluttered up. There are several other pages like this scattered around
Wikibooks and are a minor annoyance when trying to do project maintainance, as
you look and realize that you can't get to the page or do any sort of cleanup
even with sysop privileges. This may also be an indication of other problems
with MediaWiki software unrelated to namespace pages that haven't been deleted.
Looks like we ran an update of the namespace. There is no
more issue on en.wikibooks.org.
