API lists no usercontribs for users blocked with 'hideuser' (but Special:Contributions does)
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The API does not list any edits for users blocked with 'hideuser', but Special:Contributions does. Compare the two links below:

http://fr.wiktionary.org/w/api.php?action=query&list=usercontribs&ucuser=Poupoule+clemou
http://fr.wiktionary.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Poupoule_clemou

Ideally the API should list their usercontribs, even if it hides their name in generic lists & logs. (This is particularly relevant to [[m:user:StewardBot]], which checks whether they have edits to suggest unhiding.)

For users with 'hideuser', contribs shows the edits, otherwise it doesn't. So the issue is that the API never shows them no matter what?

Yep. The API listing the edits for users with 'hideuser' would be ideal.
