Moved notification leads to the old location

Description

Problem

The page moved notification email uses the old page name for both identification of the page (which is fine) and the link to the current revision (which happens to work if a redirect was left behind but is misleading).

Proposed solution

The link to the current revision should have the new page title.

Notes

This is an example of such an email

I confirm this.

An admin will see a log of moving and deletion, which happens to be helpful, but it looks like a coincidence, and in any case it's not available for non-admins.

Is this still relevant after T203941?

Is this still relevant after T203941?

Less so but since we don't know when/if we'll be able to release T203941, I would say it is still worth doing.
