Description Thierry Thomas freebsd_committer 2012-12-26 14:40:00 UTC
	When daily_calendar_enable is set (periodic.conf), `calenidar -a'
	is run, and sends mails with the content of calendar files.
	These calendar files may be encoded with non-ASCII character
	sets, defined by the variable LANG.
	Unfortunately, calendar always sends mails without defining any

	If your MUA is set for the same default charset that the one
	used by your calendar files, it may seem working, and you won't
	notice anything strange. Else, the non-ASCII strings won't be
	displayed correctly.

Fix: Please check the hereunder patch. I'm not sure that this is the
	best way to do it, but you got the idea - and it works for me!
How-To-Repeat: 	- include some non-ASCII calendar files in your ~/calendar
	  (e.g. #include <calendar.french>)
	- set your MUA to a different default charset
	  (e.g. for mutt: set charset="utf-8")
	- run `calendar -a' or wait for periodic.
