Allow specifying default collation per language in core source, rather than in site configuration
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Now that core MediaWiki supports its own custom collation for the Bashkir language (see T162823), to actually make it work on a project, $wgCategoryCollation must be set in the site configuration.

It would make more sense if simply setting $wgLanguageCode = 'ba'; would also automatically set $wgCategoryCollation = 'uppercase-ba';, unless the local settings override it. This default should probably be somewhere in MessagesBa.php (or whatever the code is).
