What is this template for?[edit]

I know full well that this is not going anywhere but I'm gonna try anyway. To me the template serves no purpose if it is added to every maintenance category since nearly all of them are backlogged (please think first before disputing). Therefore to me it only makes sense in special cases where a maintenance category can although not beein empty actually not be backlogged. This would be for example the "no license" since here we give the people seven days so only if there are more than 14 day categories than this would be backlogged. I would then remove the template from certain categories for example the "need categories" since although this is backlogged marking it has not made any difference and will not make any difference in the future. from the revert of Multichill I can already see that he is not going to like that idea but putting a template into a category does not do anything. --Cwbm (commons) (talk) 15:32, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
