Subject Re: Problem showing on main ASF page
Date Sun, 13 Nov 2011 20:32:46 GMT
Would have been useful if you noted the date/time you saw the site, the
revision of ^/infrastructure/trunk/site at the time, or took
a screenshot.  The site regenerates hourly.

Anyway, the subject line contains a ™ character, which had gotten
encoded, was not decoded by mod_mbox (aka the
software behind), and the CMS stuff just took it literally.

I suggest you follow up with the mod_mbox developers
( about the mod_mbox bug.  I'll
follow up with press@ to advise them not to use UTF-8 in subjects until
the bug is fixed.

Thanks for the report. wrote on Fri, Nov 11, 2011 at 16:14:17 -0500:
