When I run > hg import https://reviewboard-hg.mozilla.org/gecko/rev/1040f13fa3fcab02005c56d0befb78f173a8fb18 It fails with > abort: decoding near 'io Cobos ├ülvarez <e': 'charmap' codec can't decode byte 0x81 in position 14: character maps to <undefined>! This is because emilio's name contains a non-ASCII character "Á". (This is definitely not the first time I hit this :/) Looking at Mercurial's code, it seems to be picking encoding with the following code: > try: > encoding = environ.get("HGENCODING") > if not encoding: > encoding = locale.getpreferredencoding().encode('ascii') or 'ascii' > encoding = _encodingfixers.get(encoding, lambda: encoding)() > except locale.Error: > encoding = 'ascii' It's not completely clear to me what it means, but if I set HGENCODING to UTF-8, then the command can complete successfully. I'm not sure whether it is something MozillaBuild should contain a fix for, or that Mercurial should fix for Windows.
