Currently, categorisation system is used for both Wikipedia content and
However, I think that these should be dealt with separate but parallel
categorisation systems. i.e. there should be a [[Wikipedia category:foo]] which
contains things such as stub categories, NPOV dispute categories, whether a
Wikipedia user likes cats (ones that go meow), and so on, with the
[[category:foo]] system being used for content.
I suggest that the two categorisation systems can displayed at the bottom
separately, one below the other.
Also, this would stop [[special:random/category]] from taking you to Wikipedia
maintenance categories (which doesn't happen very often but is nevertheless
I'd suggest to create new namespace called "Maintenance", which would behave exactly like Category namespace. (Maybe some flag in current schema to mark the category as maintenance one could be enough.)
Then you could simply add the page to [[Maintenance:Deleteme]] instead of [[Category:Deleteme]] etc.
The only difference in page rendering would be that instead of one box like:
Categories: Deleteme | Born 2000 | People from A | Articles missing sources
you'd see two boxes like:
Categories: Born 2000 | People from A
Maintenance: Deleteme | Articles missing sources
Also preference checkbox "Show maintenance categories" (by default unchecked) would be handy for that.
Removed 'schema-change' keyword. No patch attached that requires a schema change.
