We commonly redirect questions such as "Manuscript status changed from Review in progress to Ready for review" to "What does the typical workflow of a journal look like". However they are not similar in essence at all. At best, the answer in the community question is only tangentially related; it doesn't say anything about status changes for example. This question is by no means unique either; see all the questions that are already linked to the community question.
Redirecting everything to the "typical workflow" question is similar to redirecting "How to nail a Ph.D. interview?" to "How does the admissions process work for Ph.D. programs in the US, particularly for weak or borderline students?", country tag notwithstanding. Admissions processes in different countries is probably no less different than journal workflows in different journals + fields.
Are the redirects overdone?
