Not a dev, just a regular 'pedian (en:User:Swpb) who sometimes reports software bugs. My apologies if I make a misstep.

Swpb added a comment to T92621: Spike: Automatically review pages that were reverted to a previously reviewed state [Timebox: 8 hours].

I noticed that pages like this one are appearing on NewPagesFeed (as redirects) after being un-redirected, but with the date the page was originally created. Could we simply list these pages by the date they are un-redirected?

Restricted Application added a project to T76198: Disambiguation pages should not be marked as "No citations": Collaboration-Team-Triage.

This is still a problem on NewPagesFeed, although the message does not appear under the "Info" button on the pages themselves. The opposite condition should ideally be flagged instead - if a disambiguation page does have citations, it's a problem.

Swpb added a comment to T92621: Spike: Automatically review pages that were reverted to a previously reviewed state [Timebox: 8 hours].

Ok, but that didn't really answer my question - how long do these sorts of resolutions typically take? Two months is already far from what I would call "quick". I know there's a big backlog and not enough people to do the work, I'm just wondering how things are kept from falling through the cracks indefinitely. Of course I read EBernhardson's comment; I'm looking for clarification.

Is there any change to the status of this patch? I'm not familiar with the mediawiki development workflow; what is a reasonable time frame for resolution of this kind of ticket? I'm not trying to push--clearly, there's a lot in the backlogs--I'm just curious.

Swpb added a comment to T92621: Spike: Automatically review pages that were reverted to a previously reviewed state [Timebox: 8 hours].

That's a good point, and one I'm glad you made explicit; that's a different consideration from the one I meant. I was talking about pages that had content, were subsequently redirected, and have been reverted to their former content. Such edits should be reviewed, so it's good that the filter catches them, but I think it would be stretching the consensus to treat them as "new" pages.

On Special:NewPages and Special:NewPagesFeed, along with the strictly newly created pages that are shown there now. In addition, on Special:NewPagesFeed, there should be a new search filter, like the ones already present, to include or exclude these pages. Would that fall under the project MediaWiki-exensions-PageCuration?
