Hook request for onCategorizationChange
Open, LowestPublic


I want to request a new hook that can be called when categorization changed.

Use case: I store all category names and number of childs in memcache.

Atm I have to call all kinds of hooks for that: edit, move and deletition hooks.

And onPageContentSaveComplete won't tell you if categorization changed so I flush my cache uselessly 90% of the time.

So a hook would be nice that is fired whenever the category table changes.

Update: MW 1.27 destroyed the usage of all these hooks since categorization is fired after onPageContentSaveComplete.

onPageContentSaveComplete does not like this :(
