It probably requires cleanup – please feel free to help out. In addition, some links on the page may be red; respective pages might be found at Meta. Remove this template once cleanup is complete.
category_redirect.py will move pages out of redirected categories.
The bot will look for categories that are marked with a category redirect template, take the first parameter of the template as the target of the redirect, and move all pages and subcategories of the category there. It also changes hard redirects into soft redirects, and fixes double redirects. A log is written under <userpage>/category_redirect_log. Only category pages that haven't been edited for a certain cooldown period (currently 7 days) are taken into account.
Make the program output more detailed messages than usual to the standard output about its current work, or progress, while it is proceeding. This may be helpful when debugging or dealing with unusual situations.
