Update Kurdish (ku) seed collation

Reported by: rkaldari@… Owned by: markus
Component: collation Data Locale: ku
Phase: rc Review:
Weeks: 0.1 Data Xpath:


The Wikimedia Foundation (in consultation with native Kurdish speakers) would like to propose the following collation data for Kurdish (ku):

[reorder Latn Arab]

# These tailorings are based on the Universal Kurdish Alphabet which
# seeks to accomodate all three major dialects of Kurdish: Northern
# Kurdish (Kurmanji), Central Kurdish (Sorani), and Southern Kurdish
# (Pehlewani).

# Primary differences for Kurmanji letters:

# Primary differences for Sorani and Pehlewani letters:

# The following glyphs are not officially part of the Kurdish Alphabet,
# but are sometimes used to represent distinct "non-Kurdish" sounds in
# Kurdish writing.

# "Éé Íí Úú Ùù" are alternative forms that are used in the Yekgirtú
# variant of the Kurdish-Latin alphabet.

Currently we have "ku" as a locale in seed, and "ckb" as a locale in main; we do not treat "ku" as the parent of "ckb". We may need to add collation data for these separately. May need some discussion on this.

  • Weeks set to 0.1

Replying to pedberg:

we do not treat "ku" as the parent of "ckb"

And we shouldn't -- ku defaults to Latn, ckb defaults to Arab.

We may need to add collation data for these separately. May need some discussion on this.

We have separate collation data, see source:trunk/seed/collation/ku.xml

This ticket requests an update of the ku seed collation data. This seems reasonable and uncontroversial. When I have time, I will propose merging what we have with this new data.

Thanks for investigating, I did not have a chance to look into this in detail before assigning

More than 4 years ago I made a request here (Ticket #6527) for change the collation order for Kurdish alphabet.

Then another request was made here (Ticket #9460), then here (Ticket #9964) and on this page (Ticket #9748). And the problem remains unsolved.

Can you tell me what the real problem poses, so that we can provide answers. Thanks!


Note: I remind that the purpose of these requests is to include the code ISO "ku" in the list supported by CLDR: http://www.unicode.org/repos/cldr/trunk/common/collation/

Is there any particular reason why this is being stalled? What can I do to help?
