Automatically categorize articles with named references without text
Open, Needs TriagePublic


MediaWiki detects named references that have no corresponding text and display errors in the article for this, see for example the end of this article on frwiki.

Would it be possible to automatically categorize such articles in a maintenance category (like what has been done recently for example for duplicate template arguments) ? It would help a lot to find such problems and fix them.

Probably it's better to have different tracking categories for different problems ? Or maybe make it configurable per wiki ?
