The hash number issue names sort alphabetically. It doesn't look right. See http://plone.zwiki.org/FrontPage/issuetracker?sort_on=id .

They should probably sort numerically (and change "name" heading to "issue" ?). Or, they could sort by name excluding the number part, but I don't think that would be useful.

How to sort numerically ?

We could add one more field to the catalog metadata, issueNumber, and sort on that.

We could make it sort by creation time, like the age heading, which will give the same result if issue numbers and creation time increase together. This might not always be true if people use numbers in creative ways. See http://plone.zwiki.org/IssueTracker?sort_on=creation_time .

We could add a fixed number of leading zeros; I don't want to do that.
