Hi guys,

just a quick update on issues related to UI column sort infra.

The client-side sorting fix [1] is now merged in master branch.

The server-side sorting fix [2] is pending review.

Also note that Lior merged a patch [3] which greatly simplifies
code when making text-based columns *client-side* sortable, for

  TextColumnWithTooltip<SomeEntity> nameColumn = ...

instead of this:

  // for text-based columns, need to provide separate Comparator
  // that (typically) uses LexoNumericComparator for comparison

you can do this:

  // uses LexoNumericComparator to compare column's text values


[1] http://gerrit.ovirt.org/#/c/28392/ ... where items would
    disappear from grid when activating client-side column sorting

[2] http://gerrit.ovirt.org/#/c/28557/ ... where triggering
    server-side sorting on a given column might corrupt the actual
    search query dispatched by the model
