commit eda32f10ec078386429d0508e814cf4986093320
Author: Marius Hoch <hoo@online.de>
Date:   Tue Jan 5 23:12:01 2016 -0800
   Use "origin-not-empty" as error code if "fromid" is not empty
   
   "target-not-empty" is a pretty obvious mistake
   here as this is about the item that is going to
   hold a redirect, not about the target of that
   redirect.
   
   DEPLOY: Consider writing a short note about this
   to the wikidata mailing list.
