Hi all,

while debugging some encoding issues in Squeak Inbox Talk, I observed a possible encoding issues with the pipermail archives for squeak-dev. Specifically, I'm referring to the downloadable versions, e.g., http://lists.squeakfoundation.org/pipermail/squeak-dev/2022-November.txt or http://lists.squeakfoundation.org/pipermail/squeak-dev/2022-November.txt.gz.

When I retrieve such a file which is encoded as UTF-8 using the WebClient, the Content-Type header of the server response does not include the charset used, so Squeak does not decode the UTF-8 again. I'm not sure, but shouldn't the server indicate this? Of course, I can work around, just wanted to document this here. :-)

(Note that this bug report is independent of the multipart encoding issue I analyzed in http://lists.squeakfoundation.org/pipermail/squeak-dev/2022-November/222729.html which turned out to be my fault.)
