 a good reason for having numeric slugs. It's 2016 and I think it's okay to
 have the actual title in a permalink.

 I'd tend to agree, but it would be great if Cyrillic slugs were not
 truncated at ~33 characters (it's more like half of the actual title for
 us, which doesn't look good or informative), see #1884.

 results, which now correctly redirect to the new topic/forum locations.

 Could you activate it on ru.wordpress.org/support as well? We used to have
 numeric topic links in some plugins written for the ru_RU community, e.g.
 http://ru.forums.wordpress.org/topic/7292 in
 update/tags/0.5/restore-automatic-update.php?marks=4#L1 Restore Automatic
 Upgrade], and they were properly redirected before the upgrade.
