Hello everyone,

I experience some locale issues on windows with 0.38 (same problem for
some times). Locale/encoding is wrong. Language is french, but the
monotone messages show all accentuated characters wrong.

It's weird because for example, "(révision de base)" is output as
"(rÚvision de base)" where:
- é is ISO8859-1 0xE9 or U+00E9
- Ú is ISO8859-1 0xDA or U+00DA

I can't recall in which version this problem appeared.

Which package do you use? The native binary or the cygwin package? Maybe one of the packager(s) knows whats wrong here...

Second issue, i can't import any file with non-ascii characters it, it
fails with std::logic_error at

And this makes me wonder: when i import non-ascii filenames, how are
they stored ? if i checkout on a linux box with an UTF-8 locale, will
the filenames be transcoded ?

monotone uses an internal normalized utf8 format for paths, however the conversions from/to the various external character sets is what most likely make problems (and throws out the logic error above), just because its not really there (tm) yet. So you're safe if everything uses utf8 around you - otherwise you're pretty much on your own for now.
