some similar to #2584
Django works only with utf8 codepage in Syndication feeds (RSS and Atom) (and maybe much more others places).

In django/contrib/syndication/ hardcode defined utf-8 codepage in .decode('utf-8') conversions everywhere.

Better to move this option out to as RSSATOM_CODEPAGE or try to extract this data from DEFAULT_CHARSET

  • Triage Stage changed from Unreviewed to Design decision needed

So the suggestion is to enable a user selected charset for RSS feeds? is it really that common to not want UTF-8?

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

I'm not convinced this is needed. Every XML parser is required to be able to understand UTF-8 and Python has excellent support for encoding data into UTF-8. I'm not sure what benefits any extra configuration brings us.
