Description

On mediawiki.org,

  1. Type "Manual:Content" in the search bar.

I. Observed: the "Manual:Content namespace" title is suggested.

  1. Click it.

II. Observed: the search page is opened and the title is said not to exist.
III. Expected: the suggested title should exist.

What exists is "Content namespace" without Manual:, which is a redirect.

fixes though.

I doubt it, the patch it follows up to is not live on mediawiki.org.

Still happening, for instance on mediawiki.org I'm suggested the title "Manual:Composer/packagist.org" which never existed AFAICS.
