1 Hi,
3 Gentoo's UTF-8 support is not very good at the moment. Yesterday I commited a
4 few ebuilds with UTF-8 support (ncurses,dialog,grep). To take advantage of
5 them you have to put "unicode" in your useflags and set a UTF-8 locale on
6 your system. There are quite a few applications that have problems with
7 UTF-8. The next items on my todo list are midnightcommander and sed. I'll add
8 a UTF-8 herd tomorrow if there are no complains. Fellows are always
9 welcome :)
