Hello! I've just joined this list, so I apologize if this has been discussed before.
Today in #freebsd on FreeNode, I've asked whether there was any particular reason why UTF-8 wasn't the default in FreeBSD yet. What followed was a small discussion regarding this, and it seems that there's a good number of people who'd like to see that done. One mentioned that 11 would be the perfect opportunity to make this switch (although I understand it might be too late by now --- maybe 12.0?). It would definitely help internationalization (I was half-considering posting this to freebsd-i18n list instead, but then I figured this one would be more appropriate), and I can't see *that* much of a reason not to use it. So, without further ado: 1) What are the reasons that UTF-8 isn't the default yet? 2) Would it be possible to make this the default in 11.0? What about 12.0? 3) Assuming an effort is started towards making UTF-8 the default, what changes would be required? _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
