Bot has already been editing. I have been inactive for some time and have had 3 previous expired BRFAs for this task due to various reasons. Some examples of edits can be found below.

I assume the bot ignores hidden categories, and other non-content categories (i.e. cleanup)? Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 16:31, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
Please see [8], This is a list of all articles that are tagged as uncategorized but do have at least one unhidden category. ·Add§hore· Talk To Me! 16:36, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
 Approved. Well per IRC discussions, etc..., this bot ran this task without a BRFA by mistake, but performed it well. Since the task is reasonable, and already has been trialed (unapproved run), and this is basically the complement to Wikipedia:Bots/Requests for approval/Addbot 21, I'm going to approve it.
