Not fixing this would mean that users who want to continue using babel won't benefit much from global user pages.

duplicate of T89973?

Yes, but let's not dupe it since this is specifically about Babel, which we may be able to implement separately from normal categories.

Legoktm renamed this task from Babel categories are not added to local user pages copied from a global user page to Categories are not added to local user pages copied from a global user page.Sep 12 2016, 8:57 AM
Legoktm changed the task status from Open to Stalled.

I have submitted patches to address this in Babel, and maintain a central database of language information.

Is there an expectation that non-Babel categories will work on remote wikis? I don't think so, and would propose declining the general "categories are not copied over" task.

No reply, hence boldly declining.
