Description

6.0 will store filter description file as UTF-8.
4.x used file system charset instead, so need charset conversion for migration. 
It is the same kind of charset conversion applied to prefs.js.
marking m17.
Summary: filter description file migration needs UTF-8 conversion → [i18n] filter description file migration needs UTF-8 conversion
Target Milestone: --- → M17

I actually just checked in changes to make 6.0 filters actually read the filter 
NAME as utf8.

we are dropping filter descriptions though, so you can ignore that.
giving my i18n bugs to alecf.

thanks alec.

never mind, I found what I'm looking for.
For future reference, this is in nsMsgFilter.cpp in
nsMsgFilter::ConvertMoveToFolderValue

Alec, does that mean we do not migrate filters?

Comment 13

I think what Alec said is the "Description" field/attribute of a filter is no
longer in a filter (record). In other words, the migrated filter will not
have the description field.

I think the filter description will stay in the filters file, but there's no
user-visible display of the descriptioion.

There's another bug about the filter name being migrated, which I think may have
been fixed by now

per i18n/mail triage meeting. This bug has been marked as
nsbeta3-.
If by filling in a name for the filter which is there, filtering
function works, then that should be OK.
If the function is totally disabled, then submit with new
sets of data.

It seems unclear to me whether this bug requires either of a "developer" or 
"user" release note for Netscape 6 RTM. If anyone feels it does, can they please 
draft one and then nominate with the relnote-user or relnote-devel strings in 
the Status Whiteboard.

Thanks :-)

actually, I'm marking this WONTFIX because we've basically dropped filter
descriptions.
