# from https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=307731
subject of mail notification from MW 1.5rc4 is not encoded when using 2-byte
UTF-8 charactors (like Japanese).
it should be encoded by B-encode for mail header.
# or some special settings in MW to do this :p
# if so, it should be enable by default.
in include/UserMailer.php, we should add wfQuotedPrintable(), i think.
% diff UserMailer.php mediawiki-1.5rc4/includes/UserMailer.php
< $this->subject = wfQuotedPrintable( $subject );
> $this->subject = $subject;
Russian wikipedia is also affected by this bug.
Please, fix it.

As are all the other Wikipedias, and any other wiki using MediaWiki. Just bear
with us while someone proposes a patch, reviews and commits it.
The version is set to 1.5rc4. Has this been fixed in a release version, like 1.5.2?

Patch for HEAD
* (bug 3407) Fix encoding of subject and from/to headers on notification
mails; userMailer() now takes a MailAddress wrapper object instead of
a raw string to abstract things a level.
Applied to CVS HEAD.
