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.

Here's some examples at the Bashkir Wikibooks:

They show the sort order:

But it should be:

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...
