This bot watches the deletion log at Commons and with a delay of five minutes removes file references from articles (namespace 0) and template (namespace 10) of files which have been deleted. This bot does not delete files but only removes usage of files that are no longer available to avoid broken links in articles (see Category:Articles with missing files). Approved at BRFA on 19 February 2014.
Searchable log of the bot's action is available at: //tools.wmflabs.org/krdbot/cgi-bin/Dateientlinkerlog.pl
