Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 70443
Bugzilla should support UTF-8 in bug reports
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:45:05 EDT
It seems Red Hat Bugzilla doesn't grok non-ASCII characters in bug reports. I
suspect the database backend is the culprit, as all other Bugzillas I know will
handle iso-8859-1 just fine.
This makes creating bug reports regarding i18n a real pain and sometimes the bug
reports very hard to understand since either the characters are displayed
wrongly in the report or the exact characters must be described rather than
shown in the report, which can be a real mess.
It would be great if Bugzilla could accept and use UTF-8 in bug reports.
Here is example of problems:

Is Red Hat working on this?
Red Hat's current Bugzilla version is 2.18. I am moving all older open bugs to
this version. Any bugs against the older versions will need to be verified that
they are still bugs. This will help me also to sort them better.
This WFM now! I just tried typing in some cyrillics (bug 1 comment #53) and it
was processed completely correctly. Even the Bugzilla email came with
"Content-type: text/plain; charset=utf-8" in the header and my UTF-8 comment was
displayed correctly in that email.
