When a page is protected and then moved, the protection is moved, but the
protection log remains on the redirect article.
This provokes examples where page is protected and has no protection log to show.
Imho, we have 3 possibilities :
- move log history (pb with what should be kept or not - rename log etc.)
- duplicate log history
- when we move a protected page, automatically add another log like "Keeping
protection of moved page. Reason was: "
Last one is probably the easiest.
Of the 3, I guess the last one is the best

Having logs entries where non-administrators are seemingly protecting pages may be easy, but it is wrong. The log is supposed to reflect what actually happens in the wiki. The log should be moved instead, as with moving the block log of renamed users. There is no new protection, the protection and log are simply moving with the page.
Where you might want new protection log entries is with bug 10527 - protecting the redirect left behind after the move. In such a case, I would rather see this attributed to the last admin who protected the page (as with autoblocks) rather than having non-admins with protection log entries.
See bug 15754
Closing again. Separate bug will be done separately.
