Hi native language communities and esp. the WebContent developers among
I recently stumbled over a few filenames in OpenOffice.org's webcontent
which have invalid non-UTF-8 characters in their filenames.
The character encoding to be used for webconent checked into
OpenOffice.org´s webcontent CVS repository is UTF-8. Please make sure
use an UTF-8 locale when checking in files with non-us-AscII chars. For
example if you are in france and are using some Unix OS set
LANG=fr.UTF-8 and not LANG=fr.ISO8859-15. GUI CVS Clients used on
Windows often allow to specify the encoding to be used explicitly.
Filenames with other encodings will not work and what is even worse
they do create a big problem when moving OpenOffice.org to the new
kenai based infrastructure.
While CVS does not care much about invalid chars in filenames
subversion which will be used on the new infrastructure does treat
those filenames as errornous and as a result will not import the whole
project at all.
Could native language projects webcontent developers please review
their webcontent and change anything that is currently not UTF-8
compliant. And that means not only to copy the broken files to new
valid ones but also deleting the broken filenames from the CVS
For example there are 2 broken directory names in
fr/www/Documentation/Gallery starting with the letters "fl" and than
some non UTF-8 encoded char.
