Provide option to move template documentation pages along with parent page
Open, Needs TriagePublicFeature

Description

When Wikipedia editors move a template to a new title, the documentation subpage currently becomes stranded. Normally, they remember to move the subpage as well, but this occasionally gets missed, and is inconvenient regardless. Could there be a checkbox, that appears when moving template-space pages with a /doc subpage, that allows for the documentation to be moved automatically along with the parent page (similar to the talk page checkbox that already exists)?

Event Timeline

There is a feature to move subpages on Special:MovePage, but that is typically not enabled in the template namespace, because the namespace itself is not a page which allows subpages (by definition of mediawiki)
