Description Melancholie 2008-05-10 16:36:36 UTC
After changing a category in a flagged article, the article stays in the former category! This is because the stable revision is in this category.
But this should only apply for the latest stable revision, if at all.
If a years old stable rev was in category X, currently the article seems to stay in category X until the rev is unflagged.
Comment 1 Aaron Schulz 2008-05-10 16:39:52 UTC
This is only for the latest reviewed version (aka "stable version). Other old reviewed versions
should not affect the categories.
Comment 2 Melancholie 2008-05-10 16:44:30 UTC
So this is a intended behaviour?

Comment 4 Melancholie 2008-05-10 16:48:20 UTC
Note: There are two examples where the category change was made by sighters (edit resulting in another flagged (latest) rev)!

1. [[:de:Wikipedia:Fragen_zur_Wikipedia#Nochn_Sichterbug.3F.21]]
2. [[:de:Wikipedia:Fragen_zur_Wikipedia#Sichtungsbugs]]

> "Other old reviewed versions should not affect the categories."

If a sight user does that category change in an article, he/she auto-sights that edit. Being the latest flagged rev, the category update actually should be done in those cases. According to comment #4 it is not!
Comment 6 Aaron Schulz 2008-05-10 17:14:39 UTC
Autoreview has a bug causing bug 14014
Comment 7 Melancholie 2008-05-10 17:23:49 UTC
Ah, I see!
