Description Puzzlet Chung 2005-05-14 07:37:23 UTC
If you look at the URL(equivalent to [[en:Category:Latin letters]]), the sort
keys of the articles B, C, etc. are originally "*B", "*C", etc. I've changed
those back into "B", "C", etc., but it doesn't apply in the category page.
Comment 1 Zigger 2005-05-14 08:01:03 UTC
The category page renders as expected here now: 26 articles under 26 headings.
Comment 2 Puzzlet Chung 2005-05-14 08:02:53 UTC
Ah.. my description was not clear - that URL is the *Korean* equivalent to
[[en:Category:Latin letters]]. See [[ko:분류:로마 문자]].
Comment 3 Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-05-14 08:04:00 UTC
Changed the severity from 'major' to 'trivial' and the priority from 'high' to
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2005-05-14 08:40:54 UTC
Moving severity to 'minor'. 'Trivial' is for things that can be very simply fixed by eg fixing a typo 
in a localization file.

This looks like changing how category links are loaded and kept in cache will be required unless we 
revert gwicke's entire incremental categorylinks update patch.

Comment 6 Erik Moeller 2005-05-20 03:37:11 UTC
I don't consider this minor or trivial, particular as we have other bugs atm
which cause sort keys to be broken (notably #73). If you can't fix them later,
that's bad. Changing priority to normal for this reason.
Comment 7 River Tarnell 2005-05-23 14:39:31 UTC
priority => high 
Comment 8 Roger Luethi 2005-05-25 06:52:36 UTC
I have just noticed that someone on en.wikipedia started to remove categories
from articles with one edit only to revert the change with the next edit. That
seems to be the current work-around for this bug. Needless to say, I agree that
fixing it is a rather high priority.

Comment 10 Brion Vibber 2005-05-25 21:28:23 UTC
I've reverted the change which causes this bug in REL1_4, and things should be working 
again on the main site from now on.

It still needs to be either fixed or reverted for 1.5, so leaving this open.
Comment 11 Brion Vibber 2005-05-26 00:26:45 UTC
I've fixed the system to take sortkey changes into account in HEAD. Resolving as FIXED.
