WikiVoyage has a small but clever extension
to do quicker lookup of
pages in additional content namespaces if no namespace prefix is
provided. So if we used this for Commons, and configured "Category:"
as an extra lookup namespace, you could type "Low quality chemical
diagrams" and it'd pull up the category of that name immediately
without the full-text search being loaded.
Thoughts? Would this be a useful improvement for Commons in
particular, even without autocompletion? I suspect it could help
reduce some of the category/gallery pain.
This sounds like a very good addition, yes.
+1. I often go directly to a category and every time typing "category:"
Erik, should an extension setup request on bugzilla be opened?
(One could as well ask it to be merged to core/MWSearch/TitleKey/whatever.)
