We are trying to migrate between databases and we are running into a problem while trying to use dumpdata. We've tried:

./ dumpdata --natural --indent 2 > dump.json


./ dumpdata --natural --format xml --indent 2 > dump.xml

Both return the following error:

Error: Unable to serialize database: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xe9' in position 18: ordinal not in range(128)

I found the problem, it had to do with a model calling repr() on a list with unicode data.
