DynamicPageList https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:DynamicPageList_%28Wikimedia%29 seems to work know, it's installed on en.wiktionary, see https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Special:Version
Re-opening. I think this request should be either accepted or rejected, not held in limbo land forever. If one dayu DynamicPageList is rewritten to be super efficient, previously WONTFIXED requests can be re-examined.

The extension has some bad performance characteristics, I'm not sure, but I imagine people might not want it enabled on any more of the larger wikis than it already is. The fact it is enabled on enwiktionary is probably a historical accident more than anything else.

Does a 2 year old consensus still stand, or would we need a new one? :-/
In order to avoid wasting effort, we should probably figure out if we would even enable this extension here (likely answer is no imo) before asking for new community concensus.

Of course yes, this extension would solve the big problem of categorisation.
We can't look in the same time in mother category and daugther category. So actually some peoples complain that category are too wide or, in contrary, to splitted. With this extension we should please the both side, and this problem is inherent to, at least, all the wiktionaries project. So if it can be useful for us, it should be also useful to other ones.
On fr.wiktionary only we have the support of the whole community, quite sure if people from other projects know about this things they'll support it.
The only argument (ignoring comment 1) so far is "DPL is not performant" (comment 5). There might be more reasons but they are not written here (yet).
DPL is in use already (see e.g. bug 59798 comment 11) though those wikis might be way smaller. It is unclear which existing DPL bugs (bug reports) should block its deployment on fr.wikt, if any.
Assuming that the performance argument is not completely made up, DPL might need a code review first. CC'ing Greg (Rel Mgmt) and Ori (Performance).
