Special:GoToLinkedPage should support redirects
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Special:GoToLinkedPage does not manage to resolve redirects.

As an example Q15735740 redirects to Q8079017 and so the two links below should both go to the same page. Instead the first goes to the "no link found" page and only the second goes to the correct location. Considering Special:GoToLinkedPage will primarily be used by external parties wanting a persistent link to a Wikipedia object making sure redirects work is extra important since the identifiers are otherwise not persistent in practice.
