Recently the {{KDE3}} template was modified to include code, that automatically adds [[Category:KDE3]] to the page. This has two consequences that may have been unintentional:

First, the {{KDE3}} template is used on some pages that was not previously in the KDE3 category, for example to mark a section that refers specifically to KDE3 in a page about a KDE 4 application.

The other thing is that previously each language had its own version of the KDE3 category (KDE3/da, KDE3/de and so on). With the new system all the translated pages will end up in the same KDE3 category.

The first doesn't worry me at all. If there is KDE 3 content on a page, it should be in that category, to draw my attention to the fact that it will eventually need editing out. That's the whole purpose of the category - to enable us to find material that needs deleting or editing, when the time is appropriate.

Actually, I'm not sure that the second one matters either, as the KDE3 category is a hidden category, intended for administrative use only. It probably doesn't help to have localised versions of that. When the English page gets edited the translators will automatically get the changes in the normal way.

Perhaps we should start removing [[Category:KDE3]] markup as we come across them. (We would first need to make sure, that those pages have the {{KDE3}} somewhere). Or do those explicit category markups still serve a purpose?

The template was intended from the start to put those pages into the category, but it didn't work. Now it does work we should remove the manual ones as we come across them, but they do no harm if they are around for a while. They don't cause the page to appear twice, for instance.
