    Hi all!

    I have a situation that I dont know what is happening:
    I have a doc called "InstalaçãoFinalFedora_Fez.txt" that after the upload, the file name changes for
    "InstalaßßoFinalFedora_Fez.txt". And if I try to do access it I get an error "Fedora error
    An error has occurred in the Fedora Access Subsystem.".
    This is an encoding issue since I change the name for "InstalacaoFinalFedora_Fez.txt" and it works fine.
    How can I fix this to acept the special Portuguese characters like (ç, ã, ó, ì, etc...)?

      Hi Antonio

      This is due to Fez saving the filename as the Fedora datastream name. I don't think Fedora likes utf8/diacritics in datastream names. Fedora needs datastream names to be a 'NC Name' which means it has to be very simple, can't start with numbers, probably can't have diacritic characters.

      I'll have a look at a workaround for this as a patch or for 1.3.
