           Summary: Deprecate CamelCase in special page names
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: wikimedia-deployment
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Special pages
        AssignedTo: wikibugs-l@lists.wikimedia.org

It would be a good idea to change all English special page aliases to common
spelling, i.e. "Broken redirects" instead of "BrokenRedirects" and so on. Most
people aren't used to read words like this and instead stop reading at a space.
Furthermore, it's quite confusing when the title says "Broken redirects", but
Special:Broken redirects doesn't lead you there. The old camel case should
probably be kept for backwards compability, but IMO the default title of a
special page should be changed to proper spacing and casing.
