Change wgCategoryCollation on the Simple English Wikipedia to uca-default-u-kn
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The Simple English Wikipedia currently uses the default collation algorithm, which has resulted in undesirable sorting in the Years category. There is consensus to change this to uca-default-u-kn. To do so, the $wgCategoryCollation configuration variable has to be changed.
