The sortable tables script in wikibits.js ([[m:Help:Sorting]]) does not recognize the standard yyyy-mm-dd format, nor does it resort to numerical sorting (it does nothing at all when the user tries to sort by that column).
The following date formats are supported:
* dd-mm-yyyy (27-10-2007)
* dd-mm-yy (27-10-07)
* dd-mmm-yyyy (27-Oct-2007)
Special handling shouldn't be required, as a standard text sort should return correct results for this date format.
That it does *nothing*, though, is a bit odd!
Meta overrides the script with an improved version, and this date format works correctly on other projects:
The problem should be in [[m:MediaWiki:Common.js]], then. I suppose this bug should be closed, since it's not an issue with the MediaWiki code?
