OOI, why uca-default? Rather than something like the other french wikis do?

	'frwiki' => 'uca-fr-u-kn', // T56680, T146675
	'frwikibooks' => 'uca-fr', // T74513
	'frwikinews' => 'uca-fr', // T68165
	'frwikiversity' => 'uca-fr', // T71782

We have chosen "uca-default" before "uca-fr" because it includes it, among several other languages collations we publish.

As a Wiktionary, it probably has many articles with titles in different languages than French.

Removing Wiktionary tag: "Please do not report language specific tasks under this project (e.g. for en.wiktionary)."

I don't know if a maintenance period was planned, but currently the "previous" and "next" links in the categories are not working properly anymore.


@JackPotte updateCollation.php is being run at this moment to sort the categories with the new collation. It may take a while. If after the script is finished the problem still persists, we will review. Thanks.
