Inject talk page categories into the article page document
Open, MediumPublic

Description

I noticed while poking around today that many interesting categories for an article are not always applied to the article page, but to the talk page. For example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Agaricus_deserticola

This has the categories:

  • Wikipedia featured articles
  • Featured articles that have appeared on the main page
  • Featured articles that have appeared on the main page once
  • FA-Class Fungi articles
  • Mid-importance Fungi articles
  • WikiProject Fungi articles

If we were doing one-hot encoding of "important" categories, it seems it would be usefull to have things like featured articles as on of those values.

This will be useful if we wanted to, say, boost articles that were once featured articles.
