The categories in Category:Authority_control_maintenance are used to help with transition
of Template:Authority_control identifiers from Commons to Wikidata, so that Authority
control template does not have to keep and maintain all the identifiers but only a link to
Wikidata where they are held and shared among all the projects. The categories there
depend on comparison of Commons identifiers with wikidata ones. However I run into a
curious problem where some pages are in some category, but that categore does not list
them. For example Creator:Titus_Livius lists that it belong to
Category:Pages_using_authority_control_with_all_identifiers_matching_Wikidata but that
category does not lists it as one of the pages that is part of it. Other pages like that
are: Creator:Alonzo_Rodriguez or Creator:Perrin_Remiet .
The only solution to the problem I found is to do an edit to the creator page, or run
Pywikibot/touch.py if I had a list of files that need it. I guess some kind of event is
needed to trigger page refresh and with activation of wikidata arbitrary access, we run
into a problem that the event is happening on Wikidata and does not trigger the refresh on
Commons. Page Purge does not seem to help. In the meantime I think I have about 100 pages
in such a limbo state, but I have no way of finding them, other than running “touch” on
large number of pages.
Any ideas what to do? Is that a bug that should be reported, or new norm. Does Wikipedia
and other projects that used wikidata for a while run into it?
I think this is the same bug as reported here:
It seems to appear on all wikis (at least observed on multiple wikisources & enwiki)
randomly; likely only or mainly on new pages.
AFAIK, null-edit for affected pages is the only solution for now. But there is no simple
way to locate pages hit by this bug (or at least I know none).
On small wikis you can noll-edit all pages created/edited in some period of time. But on
