I am a Chinese.
I have a subversion repository.There are directory names and file names in Chinese. Now,the question is :

  • if a directory name in Chinese:
    No such file or directory
    "/tags/΄µµ»񏟯": no such file or directory in revision 247 
    TracGuide — The Trac User and Administration Guide 
  • if a file name in Chinese:
    Trac detected an internal error: 
    null argument to internal routineIf you think this really should work and you can reproduce it. Then you should consider to report this problem to the Trac team. 
    Go to http://trac.edgewall.com/ and create a new ticket where you describe the problem, how to reproduce it. Don't forget to include the python traceback found below.

Have you set the default_charset option in the [trac] section of trac.ini?

comment:2 by anonymous, 19 years ago

I have set the default_charset option to cp936.
if the content of a file in Chinese, it's ok.

but if a directory name in Chinese or a file name in Chinese,the question is not ok.

Summary: Charset ???Incorrect encoding of file names in subversion repository

Trying to give this ticket a better summary.

The file contents are decoded/encoded properly, but the file name isn't. If I understand correctly, that is.

is there someone doing it correct? how

comment:8 by anonymous, 18 years ago

I have exactly the same problem and getting the same error messages when a file or directory contains a german umlaut.

The displayed URL contains the correct UTF-8 hexadecimal codings.

Our actual installation is W2003 Server / trac 0.8 / Python 2.3.4 / Apache 2.0.52 / Subversion 1.2.1

Any chance someone could create a small repository dump which reproduces the issue and attach it here?

Personally, I've never had any problems using filenames containing accented characters, neither in Subversion nor for attachments.

Resolution: worksforme
Status: newclosed

I believe that directory and filenames in the TracBrowser should be working as expected with unicode characters, after r3092. The same for attachments, since r3103.

Please try out the latest from trunk and let us know if everything works as expected.
