           Summary: Deleted pages should be served as HTTP 404
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: General/Unknown
    Classification: Unclassified
   Mobile Platform: ---

The "this page has been deleted" message should be served as HTTP 404 (note:
not HTTP 410, as in WONTFIXed bug 12345, which implies that the resource will
never come back - that is not necessarily true for deleted pages). This would
be in keeping with the "user account is not registered" message, which is
served as 404.

Related: a current discussion on the English Wikipedia, at
, regarding potential consequences of the "this page has been deleted" message
appearing in search results for living persons.
