Hi,

the UTF-8 encoding of the directory dump (dir.xiph.org/yp.xml) is broken.

It seems that UTF-8 is applied multiple times to encode the output.

Simply open the directory dump dir.xiph.org/yp.xml in your browser to see the effects of the over encoding.
f.i. german fr becomes f¼r

However the fr is displayed correctly on the website version of the directory, so something is going wrong while creating the yp.xml.

Code:
Example of over encoded
in utf8= c3 bc
c3 bc in UTF8 = c3 83 c2 bc

c3 83 c2 bc in UTF8 = c3 83 c2 83 c3 82 c2 bc
found in yp.xml   = c3 83       c3 82 c2 bc


It is not possible to undo the over encoding by just decoding utf8 multiple times, because some control chars (like utf8 c2 83, see above) are filtered out.

I also opened a ticket at trac for this issue, see Ticket#1729.

Regards

Joe-L
