ICU collations should have the ICU version number stored with the name

Description

ICU collations should have the ICU version number stored with the name.

  1. I think we should probably add a cl_collation_version field to categorylinks table. If someone upgrades php the uca version changes and everything breaks. At the very least update.php should fix this. Atm one needs to run updateCollation.php --force. The force should not be neccesary (plus a null edit to a page should fix category links that are broken in such a fashion)
