does the rename sometime lost the redirect from the previous name ?
if not, the wikidata is useless to follow/fix a redirect in the WP key

it make sense :)

looking at our list more closely :
- follow wikipedia redirect : ok (indeed redirect may be wrong but
that's may need a rule that target the issue more closely)

- (only one) wikipedia key in an outdated form : ok

- without wikipedia tag, with wikidata tag present that provides
article : I don't object

-wikidata from wikipedia tag : I don't object

- wikipedia tag in an outdated form for removal : ok

many out wikipedia in an outdated form (wikipedia:de', 'wikipedia:en', 
'wikipedia:fr') : *not ok*
for ex https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/1686710 should not get
an wikipedia=en: but of course the wikipedia=fr: one.
I don't know if the information is available or not for all those objects.
it would also be necessary to see how the case of regions with more than 
one official language is treated (there are cases with Bern in the list)

2 suggestions :
- add a table of content with the name of all topic
- a "fix in one clic" like with osmose and/or an osmose rule (osmose 
have already some basic check) would be practical, it would have allowed 
me to solve directly all the review cases

In memory Roger, thanks for all
