13:39 interop_madness for a file upload REST service, how would you pass arbitrary filenames? my idea would be via http header: "X-File-Name: <filename>; filename*=utf8''<non-ascii filename adhering to RFC5987>". any suggested improvements?
14:08 saml interop_madness, multipart?
14:08 saml http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/interact/forms.html#h-17.13.4.2
14:12 interop_madness saml, if i'm not mistaken, multipart/form-data merely moves the problem inside the individual message parts, i.e. one would still need to encode non-ascii filenames according to RFC5987
14:13 saml what is actual problem?
14:13 saml headers need to be ASCII as well, right?
14:14 interop_madness yes, which why RFC5987 had to be  conceived for non-ascii filenames
14:14 interop_madness which is*
14:14 saml you want to pass non-ascii as is?
14:14 saml can you decode RFC5987?
14:15 interop_madness no i could not. http headers have to be ASCII (or rather, ISO-8895-1, IIRC). so anything that cannot be done with this encoding has to be done by means of RFC5987
14:16 interop_madness yes i have written a parser for rfc5987
14:17 saml https://github.com/kennethreitz/requests/issues/2117
14:18 saml stackoverflow.com/questions/20591599/wh​y-arent-post-names-with-unicode-sent-co​rrectly-when-using-multipart-form-data
14:18 saml i give up
14:18 saml this is beyond my pay grade
14:20 interop_madness it's even more horrible when delivering files with unicode file names to the browser ==> browser sniffing, depending on the browser either RFC5987 or even worse stuff
