           Summary: Create web UI front-end for namespaceDupes,
                    cleanupTitles
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: 1.18-svn
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Special pages
        AssignedTo: wikibugs-l@lists.wikimedia.org
        ReportedBy: br...@pobox.com


namespaceDupes.php & cleanupTitles.php can be necessary when making certain
kinds of tweaks to the system, but they're kind of opaque.

In addition to improving their CLI interfaces (eg but 27048), I think it would
be beneficial to give these a web UI interface which can let local sysops /
bcrats / stewards (or whoever) find and clean up broken pages without manual
intervention from server maintainers.

(For Wikimedia, this will mean less site-request bottlenecking: after a
namespace tweak or other change that ends up causing problems, there'll be a
larger pool of people who can fix it.)


A web UI will also be better at providing interactive controls, eg to do batch
checks / confirmations / resolutions of ambiguous states.
