Description of problem:
There are some issues using eggdrop with non-latin characters, and UTF-8.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install eggdrop
2. Connect to an utf8 channel
3. Send '.say #chan éèàô', irc clients which are not configured to read iso-8859-1 will see '????'
Correct encoding :-)
I've find a patch and try to include it in the specfile.
Complete patch should be found here : http://www.egghelp.org/files.htm#patches (eggdrop1.6.18-sp.0007.diff)
New specfile, diff and patch are available at :
Hope that can help :)
Well, does this patch work without breaking *anything* else? And the even more
interesting question is: Why was this patch not accepted by upstream? I'm less
interested to add "features" which upstream does not accept...
It does not seem to break anything, though it should be tested anyway.
Why was the patch not included upstream ? I have no idea ; i don't even know if
it was proposed upstream...
I'm not considering missing character encoding as a feature, but as a bug ; I
need UTF support (for french chars) and I've found this patch that's all :-)
