Description Christopher Beland 2004-10-03 00:44:40 UTC
I don't know if this is a bug or a caching problem or what.  I have noticed that
when I delete items from a category on Wikipedia, they don't always show up
right away, but adding seems to be pretty reliable.  It seems to get worse if I
obsessively hit Reload in the category in a vain attempt to make things deleted
go away.

What is meant by "delete items from a category"? Are you deleting the entire
article, or removing the category tag from the article?

I'm deleting the category tag from the article.

This would have been fixed when I rewrote LinksUpdate.php. I rewrote and 
tested the category invalidation code. Purge messages aren't be sent to the 
squids, but who uses them anyway?
