Change default collation for WMF projects from uppercase to uca-default-u-kn
Open, LowPublic

Description

Per this RfC on meta, we should change the default for $wgCategoryCollation from "uppercase" to "uca-default-u-kn". For now, Wiktionary projects should be exempted (and remain "uppercase") if possible. Also, any languages that have customized versions of icu, for example, uca-fr-u-kn, should be switched to that in the process. See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgCategoryCollation#Language-specific_collations.

Once this is complete, we should run updateCollation.php on all the affected wikis.

If you ask Operations they should be able to give an indication of how long this will take to run the script over all the wikis (see T189295: ICU 57 migration for wikis using non-default collation}
