Patch for HEAD (8.68 KB, patch)
2005-12-12 06:04 UTC, Brion Vibber

Description A.A. Shimono aka. himorin 2005-09-09 16:41:48 UTC
# from
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.
Comment 1 A.A. Shimono aka. himorin 2005-09-09 17:06:08 UTC
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;

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.
