Hi Iain. Actually, for Stem I'm really looking forward to this too. Stem has special handling for the contact and platform fields (iirc the only spot non-ascii content can presently appear). Stem's parsers and API will be simplified once everything is uniformly utf-8. :P Possibly a stupid question but any reason not to require the whole descriptor document to be printable characters? _______________________________________________ tor-dev mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.torproject.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/tor-dev
