Encode revisions to UTF-8 to pass to Git commands
Review Request #10696 — Created Sept. 6, 2019 and updated — Latest diff uploaded
The logic that genates the list of commits to submit for a review
request with commit history was previously attempting to naively convert
the the revisions (which were text) to bytes. This is fine on Python 2,
s.encode('ascii')but this is no longer the
case on Python 3. Instead,
str.encode()must be called and it must be
provided with a codec. This method works on both Python 2 and Python 3.
Confirmed the following on Python versions 2.7, 3.5, 3.6, and 3.7:
- With this entire patch stack (/r/10685, /r/10695, and /r/10697),
rbt postis able to create review requests with commit history.
