uca wiki setup script

Attaching the script I used to set up http://users.v-lo.krakow.pl/~matmarex/testwiki-uk/ . It'll probably come in handy when setting up other testwikis.

Attached:

It would be interesting to hack up a version of mw that takes the category name as the collation. Ie category:uca-en would sort that way, then people could test everything in one wiki. (However that may involve more effort than is worth it)

I think Liangent's 'chinese-collation' branch implements this (among lots of other things). See bug 44667 and gerrit changeset there.

(Not exactly this of course, but it implements support for using multiple collations at once[ Iec99060e3ac89 ], and a {{DEFAULTCOLLATION:}} magic word to specify the collation of a category[ Ifdc2dc0d930 ], so it allows one to create such categories.).

(In reply to comment #3)

I think Liangent's 'chinese-collation' branch implements this (among lots of
other things). See bug 44667 and gerrit changeset there.

Yes you can play with as many collations as you want there, but that requires some LocalSettings.php change and an updateCollation.php run, and degrades site performance (greatly?) per Tim's comment.

Bug 56041 is going to block deployments on large wikis. Until now I think the largest one that went smoothly was pl.wp with ~800k articles (bug 42413) and the smallest one that was troublesome was fr.wp with ~1400k articles (bug 54680).

(I watch this task closely, but I'm probably not the right person to be marked as assignee, as I can't actually make the necessary configuration changes.)

Link to it.wp conversation.

Did that turn into a "please do this" decision?
