Subject: the apstrophe problem in wiktionary
Original description:
[[wikt:fr:-n’t]] and [[wikt:en:-n't]] are articles about the same. But the bot see different articles. So is there a way that the script in the -wiktionary mode accepts and looks for <'> or <’> at the moment <’> or <'> is used??

bzimport set Reference to bz55303.
bzimport added a subscriber: Unknown Object (????).

I was asked by User:V85 to find a solution for that.
... see\_Diskussion:Melancholie\#Interwikis
The whole thing with those apostrophes is disputed, though.
... please read\_talk:Robert\_Ullmann\#Probleme\_with\_apostrophes\_.27\_and\_.E2.80.99

My bot is currently accepting both typographical variants of apostrophes and is ignoring some other typographical differences as well.

See for a potential patch.
