Seems that MF-W has forgiven about extra namespaces:

name | canonical name | namespace id
Портал | Portal | 100
Обговорення порталу | Portal_talk | 101

Also, please, add namespace aliases:
name | target namespace id | comment
ВМ | 4 |
К | 14 | for links, NOT for categorization. Equal to :Category:
П | 100 |
Д | 12 |

According to operations team, creating a new wikivoyage language version does not require ops (but probably Reedy / platformeng).
Changing keyword.

The new wiki should probably also be using $wgCategoryCollation = 'uca-uk', per bug 45776.

But afaik there was no discussion about it, also categorization is not as widely used in wy as in other projects, although it has some use

Because it's a relatively new setting, or at least, could only be used in it's current form as of very recently.

I'm not sure that there is any discussion to be had.

I'm oppose this setting and I don't want it to be default because it has several negative points. If community decide that wants it - ok, but I dont know about such decision.

Bohdan: Might be worth to discuss in https://incubator.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wy/uk/Wikivoyage:Кнайпа instead? That's where the Ukrainian community is and where everybody affected could see and discuss your concerns. Thanks a lot!

Aliases configured wrongly. BM and K instead of ВМ and К (you used Latin instead of Cyrillic letters)

Even looking closely at the difference, I can't see any difference on the BM one.

Thanks, seems that all is ok now. They really are the same in most fonts but is is different chars of different alphabets, see also http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Venn_diagram_gr_la_ru.svg .
