Subject: a charset parameter for sending non-ascii commit messages
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 603b
When taking part in projects where most developers are non-English, it is common that commit messages are written in a language which uses non-Ascii characters (e.g. French accents in French). For those characters to be displayed properly in the e-mail client, you need to include a charset parameter in the e-mail headers. For example: Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1" Many charsets preserve ascii characters while allowing other characters to be displayed too. A reasonable default value for this parameter would be iso-8859-1 or iso-8859-15 (handles most west-european languages).

Hrm. How might one deterimine what character set to use for attachments? Just use the same value provided by this new parameter? I would be inclined to make the default utf-8, myself.

Probably, or maybe add another parameter. Show quoted text

Good idea. The important thing is to have a parameter anyway ;) Antoine (I'm the bug submitter btw).
-C option for character set added in 1.24. Thanks!
