We investigated two UTF-8 problems at the meeting .
The character set conversion for file uploads happens in
Vend::Server::parse_multipart before we know which catalog the file upload
belongs to. David and Racke agreed that we store the character set for
each uploaded file in $CGI::file_encoding first and do the conversion in
Vend::Dispatch::open_cat just before the call to open_database().
Functions which write the data in $CGI::file to the file system need
to pass the corresponding value in $CGI::file_encoding to
David proposed to run all email headers through Encode::encode('MIMEB') to
encode them properly. Racke posted a link to Bugzilla sources where
they deal with a similar problem .
In addition to that, I noted a problem with instructions in the UPGRADE
document. Jon Jensen fixed this problem  and spurious code in the
administration pages .
