[jgit-dev] Encoding used in the repository, e.g., for file names

Hi all,

According to my understanding (and in contrast with, for example, SVN) Git
has not standardized on the encoding used to store, e.g., file names in the
repository, it simply takes the byte-sequence it gets from the operating
system. With pure Java it is not possible to get the byte-sequence of file
names, because Java already has translated them to characters. What impact
this has for the compatibility between JGit and Git?

Best regards,
Thomas Singer
