Subject: Wrong charset for German messages
Date: Sat, 21 Apr 2007 15:48:17 +0100
Package: mailman
Version: 1:2.1.9-4

Upstream report from ubuntu bugtracking system: 
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mailman/+bug/51925

The German Messages for Mailman are utf-8 encoded. However in
/usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/Defaults.py the German messages are added with

add_language('de', _('German'), 'iso-8859-1')

This results in messed up umlauts in the user's Webbrowser.
Change it to

add_language('de', _('German'), 'utf-8')

and everything works fine.


Thanks.
