patch UTF8 - 04/19/08 update
« on: June 26, 2008, 07:20:04 PM »
Hi everybody,

here is a script that allow you to correct all your installed contribs that are not UTF8 compliant. It is based on the script shown here http://wiki.contribs.org/Translations#Conversion_script, but unlike the german one, you can use this one as many time as you want.

I am wondering if it could be a good idea to add this to the post-upgrade event.


Code: [Select]
cd
wget http://smeserver.pialasse.com/fichiers/convert_utf-8.sh
chmod +x convert_utf-8.sh
sh convert_utf-8.sh

No need to, the bug is this one: http://bugs.contribs.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3858 and both versions of the script have been attached.

I updated the wiki accordingly and put the script in the bugtracker so users can download it from there.

I am wondering if it could be a good idea to add this to the post-upgrade event.
This should preferrably be discussed in the bug mentioned in this thread, but I think we need to fix this issue instead of work around it.

thanks cactus for pushing the script into the good bug post in the bugtracker and to update the wiki, i was waiting to have some returns before adding it to the wiki.

I will add some word in the bugtracker to discuss about this workaround or "fix" ... as fix means fix all contribs ever created ...
