OAuth: don't abort if the username does not exist on project
Open, NormalPublicBug

Description

When removing Category:Wp/olo on olo.wikipedia.org (a relict left from importing the site from incubator), the bot systematically fails and abort if the page where the category is to be removed has an interwiki link (old-style, not wikidata) and the bot account is not registered on that site. I'm not sure if that's the desired behaviour.

@Ladsgroup Maybe your "Dexbot" could be run on olowiki so old interwiki links are added/migrated to Wikidata, while we await resolution on this one? (olowiki is now part of the global bot policy so Dexbot edits won't be a problem there). Thanks!

My bot is cleaning as much as it can

I suppose that this problem does not concern only category.py, I've the same with one of my own script that work on translations, that do API requests of Wikipedias on various languages.
