           Summary: A page redirected to, but with no links to the
                    redirecting page, is not considered orphaned
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Redirects
        AssignedTo: wikibugs-l@lists.wikimedia.org
        ReportedBy: matteosistise...@gmail.com


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.
