Re: subversion and utf-8

from the utf-8 problem described for 1.5 at

I am not having problems using Subversion 1.6.5 and Cygwin 1.7.0-62. However, my knowledge of character sets is very limited, so let me describe what I did.

First, I made a repository.

% svnadmin create repos
% R=file://`pwd`/repos

Then, I checked it out into a working directory.

% svn co $R wc

Then, I created a couple of files with non-ASCII characters in their name. (Since I don't normally do this, I just copied some words from your email's signature.)

% export LANG=C.UTF-8
% touch wc/Burgstraße wc/Geschäftsführer wc/für
% svn add wc/*
% svn ci -m '' wc

Note that the "svn add" will fail if I don't set LANG=C.UTF-8.

I checked this out into a different working directory.

% svn co $R wc2

I then tried changing a file in one working directory and updating the other.

% date > wc/für
% svn ci -m '' wc
% svn up wc2

All this worked fine on my system as long as LANG=C.UTF-8. I tried it from the console window and from MinTTY.
