Description matteo sisti sette 2011-01-04 21:04:19 UTC
Steps to reproduce:

Create a page A

Ensure there is no link to page A in any other page. So A is an orphaned page.

Move A to B.

Go to Special Pages / Orphaned Pages

Observed: Neither the old page A nor the new page B is listed.

Expected: I would expect page B to be listed as an orphaned page. I would accept page A to be listed instead. 

But it is clearly inconsistent that neither of them is listed. If you postulate that B is not orphaned because A exists and redirects to B, then A is a page that exists. But then A should be listed as an orphaned page since there's no page linking to A.

If you consider that A is not an existing page linking to B, then B should be listed as orphaned because there's no page (other than the redirect) linking to B.
