Author: rowan.collins

Description:
The [[Special:Categories]] page, which lists all categories in a wiki, currently
just starts at the beginning of the alphabet, and offers "next X"-type links; it
should be remodelled based on [[Special:Allpages]], which presents a choice of
"from X to Y" pages, with each one then giving a page starting at that position
in the alphabet. This makes much more sense for anything beyond a very small
selection of categories, and is a must when you have as many as the English
Wikipedia now does...

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.
