Detailed Description

Remove pages with only 1 revision from the MediaWiki namespace, without flooding recent changes, delete logs, etc.

Irreversible (can't use standard undelete) and does not update link tables

This is mainly useful to run before maintenance/update.php when upgrading to 1.9, to prevent flooding recent changes/deletion logs. It's intended to be conservative, so it's possible that a few entries will be left for deletion by the upgrade script. It's also possible that it hasn't been tested thouroughly enough, and will delete something it shouldn't; so back up your DB if there's anything in the MediaWiki that is important to you.
