Enable hiragana/katakana mapping for other languages
Open, NormalPublic

Description

See T176197#3737728 and following comments.

After discussions on Wikipedia and Wiktionary, the general consensus is that we should enable the hiragana to katakana (H2K) mapping for French, Russian, Italian, and Swedish because it has a small effect but seems useful.

Not directly part of this ticket, but part of the related discussion: we should decide whether we should keep going down the list of unpacked analyzers, and whether we should pro-actively unpack the other analyzers, and whether we should just enable it for languages where it has a small but positive impact (and doesn't cause problems with the analyzer).

Let's talk about this during sprint planning tomorrow!

We'll make an announcement to the various wikis village pumps for this upcoming work (we're not sure of exact timelines) and we'll post again before we release the changes into production.

I think we'll be able to work on this in Q3, FY2017/18, as time allows
