Description

10 months ago
Kitsune has a number of articles which just redirect to other articles. Their content is:

  REDIRECT <link to other page>

See for example 

  https://hwsfp35778.lithium.com/t5/How-To/Page-Info-window/ta-p/15132#General


Kitsune automatically recognizes those pages are redirects the user without ever displaying the intermediate page.

Currently Lithium displays the intermediate page and user has to manually click on the redirect link to get to the page with the content. We need to implement a similar solution in Lithium which automatically redirects user and also respects URL parameters and anchors, e.g. https://foo#bar is redirects to https://lala#bar and not just https://lala

Did a local POC to test a solution for this.  Asking our engineering team to see if we can roll it out for Mozilla.  Should have answer/rec shortly.

I can not help but wonder is this correct to be still assigned to Scott of Lithium.
The status is at present New, so I will change that to Assigned, as that was apparently just an oversight.
I also note it has no priority or milestone, but it is not my place to change that for this bug.

Hopefully this being dealt with as part of the general redirects issue (bug1324426). If not then any indication when it will be dealt with.

The last action seems to have been about a month ago.
