Ticket #749 (new defect)
Package check cannot handle byte-order-mark in .cabal file
|Reported by:||guest||Owned by:|
When I edit a .cabal file with Notepad (Windows XP) and save it as UTF-8, Notepad writes a byte-order-mark at the start of the file. When testing the package for upload, I got the message:
400 Error in upload line 1: unrecognised field or section: "\65279Name: GeBoP"
