Would it be possible for when the user presses "Add" that if they have put "Category:" (or whatever the localised version is), that it is removed by the software
I've done it a couple of times with it in, and then am like WTF when it doesnt work
Changing to Enhancement (as it isnt really a bug)
I'd say this is a real bug, since we usually accept such things with namespace prefixes with no problem.
Steps to reproduce:
1) Go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Export
2) In "Add pages to from category" box type "Category:Long Island"
3) Click "Add" button
A bunch of pages from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Long_Island should be listed in the export page list box.
No pages are listed.
Type "Long Island" without the "Category:" namespace prefix.
Normalize the category name more sensible in Special:Export, so that category names are accepted both with and without the 'Category:' prefix.
I suppose, its only a case of sending it to a function thats already written and having the normalised title sent back
Fixed in r39184.
