Latin name user registration sevices have no problems. Any user with Cyrillic WikiUserName and latin LoginName can not get a password. He get a registration code, can edit his and others pages, get added to users list but see in left upper corner something like

No password sent and so it is imposiible to change or reset it.

The question mark shoud not mark LoginName seznam in the left upper corner! Look to the source:

You see the Cyryllic WikiUserName here first in utf-8 and next in koi8-r. Topic exists, but named in koi8-r encoding.

I have only applied the following dirty patch to repare sorting Item3680, but it has no relation to this problem.

The main problem on this page needs investigation as you say. Presumably the user's page is not being created for Cyrillic-named WikiUsernames, which is why you then see the question mark on 'serznam' link at top of sidebar - the actual Cyrillic named link looks OK. So you need to look into where the user's page is being created and why it's failing there, I would think, as well as why no password is sent (could be consequential error, like the sidebar link).

As for the issue of users getting added properly to TWikiUsers, I had a look at this - I think the solution is to do the setlocale on LC_COLLATE in SVN:lib/, where the other locale setup is done - that should then work for all modules, though I've not tested this.

Also, in SVN:lib/TWiki/Users/, your change to the regex needs improving so it works with standard locale regexes across all Perl versions and platforms:

              } elsif ( $line =~ /^\s+\*\s([$regex{upperAlpha}]) - / ) {   

Great to see these fixes going in - not sure if you have commit privileges for TWiki code, but if you're interested I'd be happy to support you in this. See TWiki:Codev.ReadmeFirst and in particular TWiki:Codev.SoYouWantToBeATWikiDeveloper.

The user page is being created as it was mentioned above, saying he can edit it. Its name is correct and the added to Users.txt line is correct.

I did know the regex was just for our installation case that was I mean the patch is dearty but sure it was much better al least to mark it as FIX ME in code.

I do not have the commit privileges for TWiki code. I can not promise to be very creative but hope very much to be useful and non-destructive.

By the way, I can not found any mention about Develop branch in SVN. What is it for and what I need to watch here?

-- TWiki:Main.SergejZnamenskij - 25 Feb 2007

Development is done on MAIN branch. "DEVELOP" branch was an old name for it.


Confirming as one of the many things that needs further review if work on an I18N branch ever starts.
