[Patch] Resolve Wikipedia redirects when failing Wikidata lookup

Reported by: nyurik Owned by: simon04
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Plugin wikipedia Version:
Keywords: Cc:


Frequently Wikipedia articles get renamed, and the OSM "wikipedia" tag is left pointing to the "redirect" page. Unfortunately, the api.php?action=wbsearchentities does not handle redirects. Thus, for all failed Wikidata lookups, the plugin should try to resolve Wiki link, and try the Wikidata lookup again. This API call does both - it normalizes page titles (2 in this case), and resolves redirects:|usa&redirects
