Re: svn checkout - special characters in file name are not encoding properly

Please let me know how to check the file system encoding type in
repository, and assist me to change the encoding with a proper encoding
format to get the files properly.

Re: svn checkout - special characters in file name are not encoding

(I'm going to handle just the "svn repository" potential cause of the
problem. I'll let others handle the "client-side problem, but repository
okay" potential cause.)

We do support UTF-8 file names:

0:% x="modŠle fields-replacements.xsl"
0:% echo foo > $x
0:% $svnmucc put -mmsg $x file://`pwd`/r1/$x
r2 committed by daniel at 2010-08-09T15:28:18.165794Z
0:% $svn up wc1
A wc1/modŠle fields-replacements.xsl
Updated to revision 2.
0:% ls wc1
branches modŠle fields-replacements.xsl tags trunk

(this is under linux with a UTF-8 locale)

Given that you migrated from CVS to SVN, can you check that the filenames
inside the repository's filesystem are encoded in UTF-8 and not in
