We've seen a few similar complaints about unicode in file names
with kgb-client run on Alioth. It was never quite clear if the
problem is in KGB (on the client or server side) or somewhere in git
/ on Alioth. Unicode in committers' names usually worked.

Now for the webhook and salsa integration, it looks good for names
and filenames:

05:01 -KGB-1:#debconf-team- Name1 Name2 (名义) (via Name1 Name2) master $hash dc18

(Names replaced and message shortened for privacy reasons.)

Now we would need a ☃.git repo on salsa too :)
