I disagree. URLs should be stable, especially when the cost is low.
I'll start moving the pages to the new locations and I'll put in
redirects whenever I find a broken link.

Don't please. We have put a lot of work into this new structure and we
don't need to destroy it again with tons of redirects. Please follow the
new guidelines.

Therefore redirects are needed - not for each old article - but
for each old article for which we provide a link to our users.

Exactly. If the redirects indeed destroy the new structure, which is
valuable and I do appreciate the work people put in it, then it is a
bug in the wiki engine that we should fix. The redirects should
invisibly sit there and only help when someone uses an old link.

Guys, get real. We wont patch around in mediawiki just so the few very
low traffic links to your wiki pages still work. Fix links where ever
you find them wrong. This is a NEW web-page. The first YaST page is not
even on the top 100 of the popular pages of the old wiki...
