Fix sort order in Bashkir projects' Special:AllPages, etc.
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Following T162823: Changing the alphabetical sorting (collation) @ ba.wikipedia.org (closed in June 2017), collation in the Bashkir Wikipedia's categories was corrected via a temporary workaround. Unfortunately, the change does not seem to have affected the sort order in Special pages that list pages, such as Special:AllPages and Special:PrefixIndex.

Apparently bawiki and the recently opened bawikibooks both suffer from the same problem.

Event Timeline

Dcljr renamed this task from Fix collation (sort order) in Bashkir Wikibooks to Fix sort order in Bashkir projects' Special:AllPages, etc..Aug 31 2017, 4:25 AM
Dcljr updated the task description. (Show Details)

Here's some examples at the Bashkir Wikibooks:

They show the sort order:

  • ЁАБВГДЕЖЗИЙКЛМНОПРСТУФХЦЧШЩЪЫЬЭЮЯҒҘҠҢҪҮҺӘӨ

But it should be:

  • АБВГҒДҘЕЁЖЗИЙКҠЛМНҢОӨПРСҪТУҮФХҺЦЧШЩЪЫЬЭӘЮЯ

Is this something that will need to wait for the CLDR change discussed in T162823?

AFAIK, it wouldn't.

T162823 is literally just about category sorting orders

Special:AllPages AFAIK just uses whatever mysql does for 'ORDER BY' => 'page_title', I don't think we have any way of modifying this sort order... And I don't remember seeing any request as of yet, but that's not to say there hasn't been any

I don't know if we need to add a similar "sort key" to the page table, so we can do like we do for category members.

Untagging Wikimedia-Site-requests for now, as there's nothing to deploy... I think there may need to be some MW development done first.

I wonder if it's worth filing a parent task for uca sorting of page titles...

So this requires developing a new uca collation or something along those lines? Where do all the ones from T47443 come from?
