Lists of valid namespace numbers on autogenerated API help pages are not sorted
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Lists of valid namespace numbers on autogenerated API help pages are sorted alphabetically, not numerically.

For example, on https://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=help&recursivesubmodules=1, a number of modules specify that the valid values are "0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 2300, 2301, 2302, 2303, 100, 101, 108, 109, 118, 119, 710, 711, 446, 447, 2600, 828, 829". I think it would be much neater formatted as "0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 100, 101, 108, 109, 118, 119, 446, 447, 710, 711, 828, 829, 2300, 2301, 2302, 2303, 2600".
