Description:
I think will be good idea to unite all these special pages in one with namespace selector,

Also will be good idea to add ability to specify name prefix (useful in big wikis with many uncategorized pages).

Rob Church started 7 months ago a branch with a reporting system for such special pages... But dunno what happens :-(

Also custom namespaces (Portal, List, etc) may be handled in such implementation.

Same applies to wanted and uncategorized, most linked sets of special pages.

I'll probably do this in my querypage-work branch

Uncat pages is now UncategorizedPagesPage

Uncat categories now subclasses UncategorizedPagesPage, as does uncat templates...

Varying only on the requestedNamespace...

This needs an RFC. Is there a keyword for that?

This bug feels like a duplicate of bug 4204. Thoughts?

Open since 2008 - is there any work in progress on this thing here? Or any reasons against unifying the four special pages and exposing the requestedNamespace, so that the user can choose a namespace?

Change 184189 had a related patch set uploaded (by Harmageddon):
Unify Special:UncategorizedPages/Categories/Templates

Patch-For-Review

This patch adds a namespace parameter to Special:UncategorizedPages and removes the categories and templates page. I'm not sure if we can remove Special:UncategoriedImages, too. The only difference I see is the gallery format of the latter.

Thanks! This is a very nice bug to fix. Did you also make the old special page redirect to the new URL for it? http://www.w3.org/Provider/Style/URI.html ;)

Sure, if you manage to keep the gallery format (currently done by extending ImageQueryPage ). In fact it already contains a TODO asking this.

@Harmageddon: Would you fancy reworking your patch in Gerrit so it can get merged, or is time unfortunately limited?

@Aklapper: Unfortunately, there is still an unresolved issue regarding this patch (see discussion on Gerrit). If someone comes up with a good proposal, I'd be happy to finish this.
