Collation on wmf wikis

From MediaWiki.org

Once https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/49776/4 is merged all the data below will become obsolete, as the uca-<langcode> collations will supersede uca-default for all non-multilingual wikis. Also, using UCA on wiktionaries is not necessarily a good idea, as it will sort all accented letters under one heading with their non-accented base forms, and might not handle upper- and lowercase being separate. This might not be what wiktionaries want. Matma Rex (talk) 19:02, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

This is a page for gathering up information related to category collations on Wikimedia wikis.

In most cases, these would be for uca-default. When changing large wikis, would have to coordinate with the users, as updating the collation causes categories to behave funky during the update process. At the moment its really only Portugese and English wikis that uca-default works correctly with.

  • Other various english/multilingual wikis. However for most private/read-only wikis it really doesn't matter. See bugzilla:30996#c12
  • All the wikis! Ideally sorting would just be perfect for every wiki.
