As you already mentioned setting default-zpublisher-encoding to 'utf-8'
doesn't really work. Just found that DT_Util.join_unicode has 'latin-1'
hardcoded, so properties with other encodings are not supported by
Given that I don't think we have to support other
default_zpublisher_encodings than 'latin-1'.
As AJ answered me
properties should use the u- types (ustring, utext). So the way to
proceed could be:
* document that only iso-8859-1 \inter default_encoding string/text
properties are supported
* ensure that the unicode types work (e.g.,
TarballExportContext.writeDataFile don't accept unicode text)
* change GenericSetup users (CMF, CPS) to use u* when needed (e.g.
title, description). Yep, sure :-)
