?action=info incorrectly states that a new page is indexed when not
Open, MediumPublic

Description

?action=info checks page_props to detect if a page is indexed or not. So this will be incorrect on new unpatrolled pages. Looks like this can be fixed using the InfoAction hook.

I suspect the same problem might occur with blocked users btw. since we have T13443: Auto-noindex user/user talk pages for blocked users..

This caused a lot of frustration for me today, when I was trying to help someone determine why their new article wasn't showing up in search indexes. Eventually I looked at the HTML source of the page and saw the noindex tag.
