Description Charlotte Webb 2006-11-27 12:12:09 UTC
see diff, should have given an auto-summary of "redirecting to Aberdeen Gardens,
Washington" or something similar instead of "creating new page with..."

Comment 1 Rotem Liss 2006-11-27 13:22:07 UTC
The reason for that is the use of {{subst:PAGENAME}} in the redirection. There
are two possibilities to fix that:
* Parse {{subst:}} and so before generating the automatic summary (in
Article::doEdit) - possible. The code says that the pre save transform (in
Article::preSaveTransform) is executed immediately after generating the
automatic summary, so it's possible to swap them and do the pre save transform
* Parse {{subst:}} when creating the automatic summary (in
Article::getRedirectAutosummary or, more likely, in Title::newFromRedirect) - I
don't think it should be done.
