Description merl 2008-12-11 09:03:46 UTC
The Api request returns
<page pageid="1855081" ns="14" title="Kategorie:Stausee in Europa">
 <categoryinfo size="563" pages="562" files="0" subcats="1" />
but category "Stausee in Europa" has no subcats. Same with [[:de:Kategorie:Vorlage:Babel-Herkunft]].

You easily can see that bug at or
1 K (= 1 expected subcategory) mentioned in brakets but no subcats are listed.

Need to refine the check on category pages to also make sure that zero counts match up with the category table, probably.  I'm guessing it currently only checks against the category table count if the correct count is nonzero.

Re dependency on 16660: this should really be fixed so that it doesn't happen again/automatically fixes itself, not just by running a script on Wikimedia.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2008-12-16 02:02:24 UTC
Many of those things require both. ;)
Comment 4 Guandalug 2009-07-27 18:56:39 UTC
By the way, the same problem appears for Kategories that claim to have one file in 'em, but are in fact empty. Seems to be a related bug.

> See_in_Europa&gcmnamespace=14&prop=categoryinfo

The URL does not provide that output anymore:
    <categorymembers gcmcontinue="page|214c4953544520444552205345454e20494e204f5354455252454943480a4c4953544520444552205345454e20494e20c396535445525245494348|177702" />

merl: How to test if this is still a problem?
Comment 6 Andre Klapper 2014-02-12 18:43:53 UTC
Unfortunately closing this report as no testcase is available (anymore).

merl: Please feel free to reopen this report if you can provide the information asked for and if this still happens. Thanks!
