pywikibot move page doesn't mark in a bot flag
Open, Needs TriagePublicBUG REPORT

Description

What happens?:

  1. Yesterday I updated my version of pywikibot, and since the update my moves shown at the recent changes. I think that before the update it was fine, but not sure...

On APISite class, the func of editpage() has parameter 'bot', but movepage() hasn't.

  1. If we talking about flags, the moves mark as 'new page edit', differently than the move in browser. (Maybe problem with the api)

What should have happened instead?:
Marked as bot, and unmarked as a new page edit.

Software version (if not a Wikimedia wiki), browser information, screenshots, other information, etc:
The last stable version in the website yesterday. I think 6.1.0

Event Timeline

API:move [1] does not have a bot flag parameter like API:edit has.

My first point was solved, but the second didn't yet.
Anyway, thanks, because the first was really critical

My first point was solved, but the second didn't yet.

As shown above the API:move has no bot flag option. I assume your bot has a flag. In that case this is a MediaWiki issue too if that flag is ignored in the rc list.
