Redirects to an article should not be considered when considering if it(the article) is an orphan or not
Open, Needs TriagePublicBUG REPORT


Steps to replicate the issue (include links if applicable):

  • Create a new article
  • The article correctly shows on the NewPagesFeed as an Orphan
  • Create a redirect to the article
  • Do a null edit on the article, so that Page Triage redoes the metadata compiling

What happens?:
The article's orphan tag goes away, although says that "The following pages do not count as incoming links: . . . Redirects and Soft redirects"

What should have happened instead?:
The article should continue to be tagged as an orphan
