Subject Re: svn checkout - special characters in file name are not encoding properly
Date Tue, 10 Aug 2010 05:22:10 GMT
Please let me know how to check the file system encoding type in 
repository, and assist me to change the encoding with a proper encoding 
format to get the files properly.

We do support UTF-8 file names:

0:% x="modŠle fields-replacements.xsl"
0:% echo foo > $x
0:% $svnmucc put -mmsg $x file://`pwd`/r1/$x 
r2 committed by daniel at 2010-08-09T15:28:18.165794Z
0:% $svn up wc1
A    wc1/modŠle fields-replacements.xsl
Updated to revision 2.
0:% ls wc1
branches  modŠle fields-replacements.xsl  tags           trunk

(this is under linux with a UTF-8 locale)
