Description:
Hallo!

This is more or less a cosmetical issue.

http://www.anubite.co.uk/mediawiki/head-rtl/index.php/user:Gangleri/bugzilla_report_/04045
shows the following parent pages
http://www.anubite.co.uk/mediawiki/head-rtl/index.php/user:Gangleri/bugzilla_report
(*without* a trailing space because this would be "trimmed")
http://www.anubite.co.uk/mediawiki/head-rtl/index.php/user:Gangleri

Trimming *all* paces and underscores before (and after) the subpage separation
character "/" migth be a (backward) compatibility issue and might conflict with
existing pages.

However the parent page looks different then what you see between the subpage
separation characters "/" (even if you know that multiple consecutive spaces and
underscores get replaced with one space only).

REOPENing

This is a request about trimming *all* spaces and underscores before and after a
"/".

Personaly I see more advantages trimming *all* spaces and underscores before and
after a "/" and allow only [[foo/bar]] then having all four variants:
[[foo/bar]], [[foo_/bar]], [[foo/_bar]] and [[foo_/_bar]].

I have no clue how many pages like the three last ones mentioned above exist in
the database already.

The slash character is primarily a legal, legitimate title character for legal,
legitimate titles. "Subpages" are a cute extra that sometimes appears.

WONTFIX.

Perhaps T48750#2176499 has a better description of the problem.
