Action "Fetch Wikidata ID" adds Q-ID when the article in wikipedia=* is a redirect

(reported by Polyglot via email)

Current behaviour
When the Wikipedia article in the wikipedia=* tag is a redirect and you do Data › Fetch Wikidata IDs, the wikidata=* tag for the redirect target is added.

What should happen instead
One of these things (optimally the user should be asked to do one of these):

  • the wikidata=* tag for the redirect target is added and the wikipedia=* tag is changed to the redirect target
  • the wikidata=* tag is not added, the wikipedia=* tag remains unchanged
  • if the redirect source and the redirect target have a wikidata item (see e.g. de:Bahnhof Horb): remove wikipedia tag, add Q-ID of the redirect source
