Oh, nice feature! Thanks for the tips.
Not sure how to properly link related tickets, but Izno mentioned T53736 ("Consider changing wikipage redirects to be proper HTTP redirects"), in the context of the discussion at WP:VPT (at @21:05, 7 May).

But that is currently happening. See VPT thread.
It's happening already, which is why I created this ticket in the first place, to avoid that. But I think that a Phab ticket is not the right venue to have a debate about pros & cons of a topic, so can you contribute your thoughts at the VPT thread? Thanks.
TheDJ, are you okay with the Talk page being indexed, when the article page is not indexed? Don't you think that hurts searcher/readers who are looking to be informed about a given topic, only to find a WP Talk page, and no article? That's the only point of this ticket; it is not to prevent Talk pages from being indexed, but only to prevent a Talk page from being the *only* page that is indexed.

Test 4: PASS
Is this ready for use? I tried four tests, got great results for three, but one problem for an url-encoded, double-quoted, two-word query (test #4).

A question: is this related to why some languages (en, no, etc.) display the links by default, and others (fr) don't? Or is that just an option that the French have opted out of? My recollection is, that fr-wiki used to display them as well, but my memory may be off.

Oh, thanks; you're right, it is confusing. Could we add a little question mark-in-circle icon next to the caption or the value, with a tooltip 'What is this?' and link it to that link you just posted?

@NRodriguez can you explain what the status ‘ Open, Needs Triage’ listed at the top means, and what the next steps are?

Sorry, it's 'Named References in VE,' which is one of the wishes from the 2019 Wishlist. We have not launched the project yet, but we are beginning the early stages of planning & investigation. --ifried, Feb 26 2020, 2:14 PM

Yes, I meant only the top ten, or however many in those "top" listings by edit count, or byte count.

Is the tag meant to remember the fact that someone clicked a particular button, or that the content changed in a particular way? It seems to me it does the former, when possibly it should do the latter, and the disconnect between the two opens the gate for vandalism and/or misunderstanding.

Besides the annoyance of the bug itself, it seems to me that it drafts wikitext editors into involuntary servitude as housekeepers to sweep up after the actions of good-faith VE editors trying to improve an article, who are thwarted by the actions of a tool through no fault of their own, and who are prevented from carrying out a workaround by the tool. To me, this is the greater problem.

I see, my apologies in that case; I misread what you were proposing. Thanks for the clarification.
This would need some sort of simple hash codes.

Your example is an editor that used Google Translate, so I don't think that's very convincing.

I reject the premise of the opening sentence of this task as false, which means that the proposal given in the second sentence is completely moot:

Hi, Lydia! That was me who reported it at en:Village pump, where Nirmos picked it up. We just met at WikiSalon BayArea where I helped catalyze your mini-talk, didn't think we'd be crossing paths so soon again, and here of all places, but schön dich noch ein mal zu »sehen« ! --Peter
