Use this rcat template on template namespace redirects only.
#REDIRECT [[Template:(target page name)]]

{{Redr|to stub template}}
Template {{Redr}} is an alias for the This is a redirect template, which may be used to add up to seven appropriate rcats, along with their parameters, to a redirect. For more information see the documentation on its template page and its comparison page. This rcat may also tag a redirect individually:
#REDIRECT [[Template:(target page name)]]

{{R to stub template}}
This is in accord with instructions found at WP:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat to tag any template namespace redirect from a template shortcut, or a redirect that resulted from a page move/rename or merge, to a stub template.
  • Template talk page redirects are in a talk namespace, not in the template namespace. This rcat should not be used to tag redirects in any talk namespace.

  • This rcat should only be used in template namespace. The following is provided for information purposes only and does not specifically apply to this rcat. In main-article namespace (mainspace), some redirects are considered printworthy; however, there are other redirects that are unprintworthy, and some rcats have no default sort for printworthiness. At some point in the future, Jimmy Wales wants to make more printed versions of Wikipedia encyclopedia articles. Some rcats automatically populate either Category:Printworthy redirects or Category:Unprintworthy redirects by default. Others do not, and when that happens it is up to editors to choose which of those categories, Printworthy or Unprintworthy, is appropriate and should be populated. The rcats that are used separately to populate those categories are:

{{Redr|from alternative name|printworthy}}
{{Redr|from alternative name|unprintworthy}}
Either {{This is a redirect}} or its alias/shortcut, {{Redr}}, may be used.
