"Outdent" doesn't do anything to the structure. It just draws a line, and the editor changes the structure manually (i.e., by not typing any colons).

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T251398: Categories not shown when switched from source editor.

Will this solve the problem that User:Refiona describes at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Topic:Vtf86rvpkhgl0jo0 ? First, only one category was visible; then, after putting all the categories in the correct order, none of them were visible in visual mode. That means that none of them could be removed from the visual editor.

Grants for software projects are available from the Wikimedia Foundation. See https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:Project However, the process is not quick, and software grants often have other requirements that would make it even slower.

Update: Probably Tuesday, 22 September 2020. But that's "probably", not "definitely".

@Dyolf77_WMF, @Urbanecm_WMF, @Samat, @Tacsipacsi: Peter and I just talked about this, and we think that this might happen on Tuesday, 22 September 2020. This is our current best guess; we may be wrong.

Update: I asked @AntiCompositeNumber to extend the timeframe in https://signatures.toolforge.org/reports/en.wikipedia.org We're working with a rolling period of 90 days, which meant 1,618 editors with plain-fancy-sig late last week. I've sent directions to all of those people. We're hoping to find out what kind of response rate we get from MassMessages before trying to replicate that process at other wikis.
