Description:
A new article was recently added to the manual:
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/adding-collation-unicode-uca.html

LDML specifications at http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr35/
declare usage of <i> for "identical" shift rule. MySQL LDML
parser supports only <p>, <s> and <t> shift rules, and <i>
is not supported.

Using <s> shift rules in the above manual section
in the example for the phonebook collation definition
is wrong here:

<rules>
  <reset>\u0000</reset>
  <s>\u0020</s> <!-- space -->
  <s>\u0028</s> <!-- l p -->
  <s>\u0029</s> <!-- r p -->
  <s>\u002B</s> <!-- plus -->
  <s>\u002D</s> <!-- hyphen -->
</rules>

The correct rules are:

<rules>
  <reset>\u0000</reset>
  <i>\u0020</i> <!-- space -->
  <i>\u0028</i> <!-- l p -->
  <i>\u0029</i> <!-- r p -->
  <i>\u002B</i> <!-- plus -->
  <i>\u002D</i> <!-- hyphen -->
</rules>

<s> is merely used because of missing <i> rule.
It's now unimportant, however it will be important
as soon as we implement
"WL#896 Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Sorts".

It's better to use the correct rules in the examples right
from the beginning.

How to repeat:
Try to change rules to:

<rules>
  <reset>\u0000</reset>
  <i>\u0020</i> <!-- space -->
  <i>\u0028</i> <!-- l p -->
  <i>\u0029</i> <!-- r p -->
  <i>\u002B</i> <!-- plus -->
  <i>\u002D</i> <!-- hyphen -->
</rules>

and follow the "how to add a collation" instructions.
MySQL will fails to add this collation.

Suggested fix:
Implement <i> shift rule and fix the manual section.

The version is actually 6.0.9.
[11 Nov 2008 17:43] Paul Dubois
Noted in 6.0.9 changelog.

MySQL support for adding collations using LDML specifications did not
support the <i> identity rule that indicates one character sorts
identically to another. The <i> rule now is supported. 

Also updated http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/6.0/en/adding-collation-unicode-uca.html accordingly.
