@Amire80 Which category collation do the users want?

Heh, that's an excellent question. I was about to just say uca-default-u-kn, but then I read about the alphabet, and found that it has a rather unusual Latin order. See and notice that Z is after S, as well as some other oddities. I guess that it needs to be added to ICU or CLDR, or can it be added locally?

We also need the namespaces translated in mediawiki/core (example) and have some extension namespaces translated too (Scribunto, Gadgets and Flow just came to my mind).

That is not a dependency for creating the site, but I'll add it to the Incubator guide.

Also, we need the version logos in normal, 1.5x and 2x and HD if possible.

My understanding of graphics is extremely weak; can you find what you need at the link from the task description: ?

Please also provide a translation of "Wikipedia" and the Wikipedia namespace in olo so we can have it added to the settings.
Oh, and also, the timezone they'd like to use, please.

These things are definitely in the link from the task description:

  • You're absolutely right they're on Meta. My bad, sorry.
  • WRT mediawiki/core, yep, they don't block wiki creation, but it has to be done. Mind if I open a separate thread to have this done?
  • WRT category collation, I've never worked with that, so maybe @Dereckson can assistst here.
  • WRT logo, I'll have that logo version uploaded as the normal version. 1.5 and 2x + HD can be provided later if they're needed.

@Amire80 Thanks but I've created them from the SVG version. See . Should I overwrite them with yours?

Whatever looks better to you if you understand graphics well - I'm pretty dumb about it.

Overwrited, yours are better. Thanks for them!

Thanks. Just to make sure, I didn't make then, I'm only passing them along.

For collation: we don't currently have defined in the MediaWiki core a specific collation for Livvi-Karelian. As such, we should use uca-default in a first time.

When/if the community raises in the future the issue, we'll need to:

  • check if it's valuable to use a near language as a starting point (e.g. uca-fi), but Finnish sort Z after Y, not after S, Š.
  • identify difference in collation order between fi (or other starting point) and olo
  • submit information to Unicode CLDR and prepare a collation in MediaWiki core

This isn't a blocker: as a new wiki, pages count is rather low and update collation will be a matter of seconds then minutes for the next months. So this is someone the community can plan, discuss and figure later.

Furthermore, figure a collation is tricky without a corpus to test it. With an working wiki, this is easier for the community to find sorting issues when they look to category pages and notice a weird sorting.

As all is ready, deployment is scheduled Thursday, October 06 21:00 UTC, between MediaWiki train and SWAT.

Categories on are currently mostly empty. Wp/olo has just 39 pages.

Could you run the script to rebuild these?

Any luck with rebuilding the categories?

Kategourii:Wp/olo is now full of articles. I guess we need to have it removed now that the import is done @MF-Warburg @SPQRobin ?

Esc3300 added a comment.EditedNov 1 2016, 4:34 PM

I think it's populated because a bot imported most interwikis to Wikidata.

What may be missing are articles that have no item at Wikidata and haven't been edited. UnconnectedPages lists some, e.g. .

Going forward, I think it's worth rebuilding the categories just after import. If categories aren't there, tools like PetScan can't be used to create items at Wikidata.

Could you define "rebuild the categories", you mean regenerate each category page?

If you look at , the script should make sure that you see

As of writing, this is not visible there. It's likely that the category links table isn't built when articles are imported.

Let's create a list of things left to do here.

  • category collation, on a subtask
  • add to meta_p? (and check if all new wikis are there as well?)

Thanks to Chase on T151570 meta_p is now handled. Input from anyone who knows about collation would be appreciated in T147064.

Guys, it's been a month. We need to know about collation.

Ping. Still need to know about collation.

MarcoAurelio assigned this task to Dereckson.

Category collation set and it seems everything here is done. Assigned to @Dereckson since he created the wiki. Closed as resolved.
