Allow repositories to specify the default encoding
Review Request #222 — Created Feb. 9, 2008 and submitted
|Review Board SVN (deprecated)|
Until now, we've been assuming that all source files are either UTF-8 or ISO-8859-15. This breaks things for people who use other, incompatible encodings like Shift-JIS. This change adds an optional encoding field to the repository model so people can set it there. This is probably the best we can do, since I don't know of any VCS that actually keeps track of the encoding of files stored inside it.
