Improve typeahead behavior with mixed-case matches


Improve typeahead behavior with mixed-case matches

Ref T8510. We had two issues with mixed-case result sorting, like typing @joe to match user Joe.

  • The fallback sort was not normalized properly, so "J" could sort after "j". Instead, normalize values for sorting.
  • The prefix_hits and older priority_hits mechanisms were competing destructively. The prefix_hits mechanism completely replaces the priority_hits mechanism. Instead, use only the prefix_hits mechanism.

Test Plan:

  • Copied results for "joe" from WMF.
  • Hard-coded the controller to return them.
  • Searched for @joe.
  • After patches, first hit is user "Joe".
