Special:Redirect should not emit 404
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Accessing https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Redirect, while the form works fine, it emits a 404 status code in the background which is wrong. This is a supported special page that should be indexable and otherwise cached and indexed normally.
