Often, a blog will have a wiki associated with it,site owner will be using api.php?action=feedrecentchanges&namespace=0 to get an RSS or Atom feed of wiki articles, in order to show the feed on a blog or send out tweets whenever new edits are made. and the site owner will be using api.php?action=feedwatchlist&wltype=new&wlshow=patrolled to get an RSS or Atom feed so he can put a list of new patrolled wiki articles on the blog.Readers of such feeds will typically have little interest in:
* edits made to already-existing articles (since these could be merely incremental improvements to coverage, Readers of such feeds will typically have little interest inrather than expansions of coverage to whole new subject areas)
* new articles that haven't been patrolled yet (and therefore could be spammy or otherwise low-quality)
* new articles that are merely redirects to already-existing articles.
Therefore, "redirect" and "!redirect" options should be added for the "wlshow" parameter to feedwatchlist. "redirect" means ONLY redirects will be shown, while "!redirect" means that NO redirects will be shown. This will be implemented usingI propose to add 'onlynew', presumably'onlypatrolled', $title->isRedirect()and 'hideredirect' parameters to feedrecentchanges.
