Categories at the time of edit


I couldn't find a rule allowing to filter only pages in a given category, when they are transcluded by templates. It would allow to apply a filter only to BLPs for example (there are various methods to assign an article to this category). So it's a request for a variable, something like a current_categories list, composed of all categories the page is in at the time of the edit, if possible.

(Batch change)

These are low-priority miniprojects that I can mop up at some point when I'm doing general code work as opposed to working on a specific projects.

Removing Dave McCabe from CC, who I somehow managed to add to the CC list of 12 bugs assigned to me.

Is it not possible to look at old_text using regex for the categories in page

If the category is applied to the page via a template, the rule needs to look for all templates which add that category.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
