Agreed, it doesn't.  They arrive as valid UTF-8 here which show just
fine so I hadn't noticed a problem, but it's clearly wrong.  I expect
it's a bug in the script but have forgotten where is it to be found.

git-commit(1) covers it.  The default for the log message is UTF-8.  If
the i18n.commitEncoding you gave is set then its value is copied into
the commit's header.  If that header isn't present then the log message
is UTF-8.

I doubt it.  I think the script probably pre-dates the popularity of
UTF-8.  :-)

Cheers, Ralph.
