Say you have a category called Foo with a subcategory called Foobar andsya there is also an article called Foobar that is categorized under Foo. Then
category Foo only seems to display the subcategory Foobar. The article appears in neither category. I observed this with Category;Reconnaissance
satellites on the public version of Wikipedia on 2004-9-2.
I'm using Safari 1.2.3.
I can't reproduce this on my 1.3 installation; the proposed test case works perfectly. Both the subcategory Foobar and the article
Foobar are displayed in the Foo category page.
There is no article [[Reconnaissance satellites]] on en.wikipedia.org, so that doesn't even match the test case. Can you clarify?
create an article "foo"
click "move article"
move to "category:foo" => refused
move to ":category:foo" => accepted, but article "foo" is lost
if category:foo is a subcategory and you delete it, it will remain in the parent
How are all these things related?
Comment #2 seems to be a namespace parsing / move bug in 1.4 (not present in 1.5) that
has nothing to do with categories specifically. What are these other things?
Re-resolving this as WORKSFORME; comment #2 is covered by newly filed bug 3380.
