National characters in filenames make Git push fail

Postby betacentauri on Tue May 28, 2013 4:35 pm

I used to succesfully push files with Spanish characters onto my Github repo, but some time ago this bliss came to an end.
When I try to push a file called e.g. 'Español Autóctono' I get:

Code: Select all
Server sent unexpected return value (500 Internal Server Error) in response to PROPFIND request for '/BLAH/BLAH/trunk/Espa%C3%B1ol%20Aut%C3%B3ctono'


I'm using RabbitVCS plugin for MATE, but the problem is the same with plain command line git.

I had to rename the files, so now it works again. Some googling seems to indicate it is a client issue. I have not afaik reconfigured git, my shell or my desktop locales. Output of locales is:

Code: Select all
LANG=en_US.UTF-8
LANGUAGE=
LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=


I have no further idea where to look at. How could I get back to use those filenames? Any suggestions please?
