That sounds reasonable.  Do you have an example of what I need to say to give apache license
permission to the patch?

Hi David,

Thanks for the offer to help.  I have a fix working, now.  It handles UTF-8 code for element
and attribute values, but depends on the system locale for element and attribute names (it
still uses isspace and isalpha).  It would probably be better to use iswspace and iswalpha,
though I am not sure whether they are as portable to all systems AXIS2/C supports.  What do
you think about that?

In any case, what should be the next step for my changes?  Would you like me to email a patch
or attach it to the JIRA bug?  Do you prefer just regular diff -u patches?

You have to attach the patch to JIRA bug. Regular diff -u patch is enough. When attaching
the patch, you have to give apache licence permission to the patch.


My changes also include new unit tests for the UTF-8 transcoder.  I integrated them with the
other Guththila unit tests that were a bit crufty, so I got them working, too.  I'll include
that in the patch as well.

Thank you very much for the quick update.  Maybe I'll offer to take that task....  Let me
think about it.

We have not looked into this for some time, because both folks who were involved with this
part of the code went on to pursue their studies.

It is time that we look for new volunteers to cover this.

It doesn't appear that Guththila supports UTF-8 even though guththila_get_encoding is hardcoded
to return "UTF-8".  After googling for a bit, I am not clear on what the plans are for UTF-8
support.  Is it planned any time soon?  JIRA AXIS2C-1265 hasn't been updated in a while. 
I'd appreciate any info on this.
