This sounds good to me, thanks for submitting a patch. Is there any reason we shouldn't always mark these page moves as bot?

You're right. We could always mark these page moves as bot because all pages are moved in the User namespace.

I agree as well. Let's just mark all as bot (and we also save some MediaWiki messages as well).

Note that jenkins has failed in a full check. I propose (https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/372780/) that @Melos be added to the trusted user group on jenkis so full results are given to him. @Legoktm I added you as reviewer for that patch.

I just approved the patch, after more than two years :-). I would like to award a token of appreciation to @Majavah, who took the patch over from @Melos, and made the signoff possible. Closing, should be deployed to beta soon, and to prod with next train :).
