Description Zigger 2005-05-22 06:17:06 UTC
I'm not sure how pages beginning with slash are supposed to be treated in the
various Apache/MediaWiki configurations and versions, but there are
inconsistencies on the 1.5alpha1 test wiki.  So I'm reporting this under
"Wikimedia web sites" for now, and marking as minor as I cannot think of a use
for these page titles.

1. Saving a new / page using redirected to the main page.

2. From Special:Contributions and Special:Allpages, clicking the URL for the /
page redirects to the main page via .
   Clicking from Special:Recentchanges works ok as it uses the URL

3. works ok.

4. redirects to the main page.

5. is "not found" by the http server.

6. redirects to .
