UploadWizard UI cannot query categories when the user adds the "category:" prefix
completed by: Theo Patt
mentors: Quim Gil
Currently it has this little problem:
User should be able to type: *Foo *Category:Foo *Localized namespaces (e.g. Catégorie:Foo if a french wiki) And have the exact same behaviour. (For example like in [[Special:RandomInCategory]]) One gotcha to watch out for is things like: *User:Foo Which should still be interpreted as Category:User:Foo
