I am new to open source contributions, I want to start with this Can you give me the details how to proceed

Hi @Rammanojpotla this is not the best one to start with. We tag tasks with "Easy" or "Needs volunteer" if we think they suitable so please peruse through this list at your leisure.

What does this task need a volunteer for? This is just a setting, AFAICT.

Lots of issues with this feature as detailed in T24660. We'll want to fix these before turning this on in stable. It's not production ready.

Why only for logged in users? A lot of my friends that read but do not edit Wikipedia use categories to navigate related topics, there really isn't much use to making non-signed in mobile users complete second class citizens of Wikimedia websites (as is already the case), you don't need an account to view categories on desktop mode, this would probably be best if it were added to ALL mobile users' interface, would probably also require less maintenance.

No analysis needed here. We can already configure categories on for logged in users. The problem here is more what we want to turn on (T246049) which likely blocks this.

Next steps:

  1. We will start with T246049: Remove the category overlay feature and output html-categories and remove the overlay for AMC only
  2. For all logged-in users, we would like to still provide the full list of categories, but also to have the ability to collapse them. @alexhollender has provided a mock here:

Currently, we will begin with T246049: Remove the category overlay feature and output html-categories and prioritize 2 at a later time due to other high-priority work

Need re-estimate
