From WP:RfD:

  • Mara (ogress) - Should speak for itself. Redirects to Mara (folklore), which describes Mara as a 'wraith', not an agre. Also, the disambiguationpage is pretty clear. -- Ec5618 20:02, May 11, 2005 (UTC)
    • It would be inappropriate and against policy to delete this was created as the result of a merge of Mara (ogress) to Mara (folklore), conducted as a result of a VfD reaching the effective consensus of Merge. The GFDL requires we retain it to preserve edit history. --MikeJ9919 21:23, 11 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      • I think that the GFDL simply requires us to keep a record of all changes. That can be done by copying the history to the surviving talk page. --Theo (Talk) 22:10, 11 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
        • Umm, keeping the history list doesn't let us see what the changes actually were (but I think you're right that GFDL requirements could be met by simply keeping the history list). Whether we'd need a record of the details for other copyright reasons isn't so clear - one could try and rely on the release implicit in hitting the "Save" button to say that all contents are inherently licensed, but if for some reason we need to show that person X added content Y, a history list alone wouldn't do it. We use a number of techniques to save the actual changes - merge histories, archive duplicate pages to Talk: subpages, etc. Noel (talk) 21:03, 12 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • Given that this was already created once, I think it's a good idea to have a redirect here, to prevent creation of another duplicate article. And this way we kill two birds - we keep the history for the merged info as well. Noel (talk) 00:40, 5 Jun 2005 (UTC)
