Summary: Show different versions of MediaWiki:Movepagetext
                    depending on if $wgFixDoubleRedirects is true or false
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: General/Unknown

When the global variable $wgFixDoubleRedirects was invented, the belonging
system message [[MediaWiki:Movepagetext]] was changed to reflect this. However,
it was set to "false" by default later, leaving a possibly misleading system
message. I'd thus propose to show different messages depending on if this
variable is set to true or false in LocalSettings.php.

I've created a patch that I'm pretty sure would work. There, when the message
is added, it makes a simple ternary operator check if $wgFixDoubleRedirects is
true or false. If so, it uses a newly created system message that shows this
text, otherwise it uses the old "Movepagetext" where I've removed the bits
about automatically updating. I didn't change the wording, so that's stuff that
may still be improved, and I also left out the /qqq for the moment until I know
if it's ok like that.
