Re: Debian Games Team website

Hi Andreas, I think I ran into the same encoding issue you just

I'm posting about this on the mailing list hoping that someone
can help and also saving the solution for future queries.

I got the Blends Website repository[0] and downloaded the UDD[1],
following all the instructions to keep a local copy of it
(set up postgresql and stuff).

Unfortunately whenever I try to build the Debian Games Blend...

    cd ~/path/to/blends/website
    cd webtools/
    ./tasks.py debian-games

...it aborts with an error message like this:

    Trackback (most recent call last):
      File "./tasks.py", line 181 in <module>
        print >> f, template.generate(**data).render('xhtml')
    UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xbb' in
position 4930: orginal not in range(128)

So have you ran on this same issue?
How do you work around it?

Note that I did not made any changes to the code, just want to see it
working locally before doing anything.
