Someone should test the setting still works. It was broken a while back, but then it got fixed (I think), need to double check it isn't re-broken.

Are you thinking of bug 30359?

@Fomafix: independently of the question if the setting works or is broken, @Legoktm raises the issue of the community discussion. Could you give us a link to the discussion on de. about this change?

Tested on mw 1.26.2, and this does not work with the current config - will set a blocking task.

Both and have been abandoned.

@Mdann52: I am resetting the assignee of this task because there has not been progress lately (please correct me if I am wrong!). Resetting the assignee avoids the impression that somebody is already working on this task. It also allows others to potentially work towards fixing this task. Please claim this task again when you plan to work on it (via Add Action...Assign / Claim in the dropdown menu) - it would be welcome. Thanks for your understanding!

As per T122771: $wgMaxRedirects does not appear to work as intended and others:

Probably best to just kill the feature, see T296430. Implementing it properly would need quite a bit of effort.
