"Page protection" section of MediaWiki's info action lists irrelevant protection statuses
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Splitting this off from bug 38536, the "Page protection" section of MediaWiki's info action feels strange when:

  • the action's output lists create protection status for a title that already exists; and
  • the action's output lists upload protection status for a title that can't really be uploaded to (really any page that's not in the File namespace).

This part of the interface needs a re-examination and reconsideration, I think.
