Some two-level-tlds accented characters changed to IDN
April 4, 2011
Anthony Howe noticed that gcc was complaining about ISO 8859-1 accented characters used in the two-level-tlds file. With his kind help, we converted those to equivalent IDN representation. Diffs are:
278c278 < aéroport.ci --- >xn--aroport-bya.ci 893c893 < drøbak.no --- >xn--drbak-wua.no 1955c1955 < lea?gaviika.no --- >xn--leagaviika-52b.no 2835c2835 < osterøy.no --- >xn--ostery-fya.no 3554c3554 < tysvær.no --- >xn--tysvr-vra.no 3587c3587 < unjárga.no --- >xn--unjrga-rta.no 3650c3650 < vegårshei.no --- >xn--vegrshei-c0a.no
As a practical matter this should have little operational impact since those domains are obscure and unlikely to be abused. Nonetheless, we thank Anthony for the correction.
