Bug #8819

ChangeLog includes non us-ascii character

Added by Kazuhiro NISHIYAMA 8 months ago. Updated 8 months ago.

Target version:-
ruby -v:r42629 Backport:1.9.3: UNKNOWN, 2.0.0: UNKNOWN


ChangeLog should be us-ascii because local variables for emacs set "coding: us-ascii".

% ruby -e 'ARGF.eachline{|line|p line.b unless line.forceencoding("us-ascii").valid_encoding?}' ChangeLog
"\t Patches by David Rodr\xC3\xADguez [Bug #8802]\n"

I would suggest to change an encoding of Changelog to UTF-8.
Please remember why we credit contributor's name in Changelog.
It is for thanking them. Incorrect name is not a polite way.....
