I think this bug is fixed. I close it. Re-open if this is not the case.

Is the sorting still wrong? David M, can you look into this and double check so we can close this bug?

Oops, the problem turned out to be localization resetting after submiting if the name field is empty.

IMHO a proper solution would be to split the map index titles localisation from the sortign code and just run a locale according to country borders (AFAIK they are all set up in proper relations these days). So for example if you choose to render a city in Poland it would use i18n_pl_generic, for France i18n_fr_generic etc when the "No localization" option is selected. Or a proper unicode sorting trick, but it would break the street name handling...

Did you select "Rzeczpospolita Polska" in the Język indeksu mapy: dropdown?

Ok, there is something broken somewhere.

Polish supported is currently under work, see patches:

Maybe you should contact directly or through dev@ the original author of those patches, Łukasz Jernaś <deejay1@srem.org>.

Still doesn't work:
I can add Polish support for it if you tell me where to look. My Python-fu is strong ;)

The sorting issue is now fixed on http://dev.maposmatic.org. Let us know if you still see the issue.

Please note that the localization of map index is only done for some languages.

Do you have a specific job number where you have observed such issue? We should properly sort names but other people have reported a similar issue, so we might have a regression here.

Ocitysmap sorts names wrong. This is quite annoying, and I found a pure Python solution here:


The relevant code would be located in humanize_street_list, but I didn't check it out.
