I just stumbled across one issue: it doesn't handle the case where you
change your encoding without checking out the repository again:
: tfheen@thosu ~/svn/trunk > LANG=en_US.UTF-8 svn st
svn: Valid UTF-8 data
followed by invalid UTF-8 sequence
(hex: f8 72 73 74)
: tfheen@thosu ~/svn/trunk > LANG=en_US svn st
[snip list of changes]
: tfheen@thosu ~/svn/trunk >
(The repository was checked out in a latin1 locale and includes files
with some of the norwegian letters æøå in their names.)
Yeah, and there's another error if you use LANG=C:
: tfheen@thosu ~/svn/trunk > LANG=C svn st
svn: Can't convert string from native encoding to 'UTF-8':
svn: F?\248rste informasjonsskriv.doc
