Subject RE: svnadmin upgrade output message i18n issue

Which build of the Windows binaries do you use?
The Subversion project doesn’t produce binaries, so can’t really support build issues.
Personally I do build the SlikSvn binaries (, so if you find
issues in that I might be able to help you.

If you build the software with the wrong settings it may not work
properly.  The solution is to build it with the correct settings.
Perhaps you can improve the Windows build.

That error would be annoying if it was a false alarm.  Perhaps we could
verify the correct behaviour: call gettext and check whether the
returned string is valid UTF8?  However, we are not getting reports of
problems so it's probably not worth the effort.  The bug that started
this thread is about the exact opposite: gettext was returning UTF8 and
the output code was failing to convert to locale encoding.
