sort: superior SymMerge-based algorithm available #7610
Someone on the mailing list told me to file a bug for this, but the SymMerge-based sort used in the sort.go file has since been surpassed by a new algorithm created by the same authors (Pok-Son Kim and Arne Kutzner): http://golang.org/src/pkg/sort/sort.go?m=text I have a GitHub page up with working implementations available, but no Go version right now. https://github.com/BonzaiThePenguin/WikiSort
If anyone wants to work on this, that's fine. But probably not during a release freeze, and probably not high enough priority that the core team will do it. (Having a stable sort with the right algorithmic complexity is good enough for me. It doesn't have to be the latest and greatest.)
Labels changed: added release-none, removed release-go1.4.
