    • Bug Fix
    • In some scenarios puppet could fail to manage file resources with UTF-8 file names because of incorrect character encoding and escaping when transforming requests into URI-compatible text. This is resolved in puppet 4.10.2 and 5.0.0.

    Description

      Hi,

      I am running a puppet server under Ubuntu 12.04 (Puppet 2.7.11) and a puppet client under Ubuntu 14.04 (Puppet 3.4.2).

      I am distributing a directory of ttf fonts from the server to the clients, the rule is

      file

      {"/usr/local/share/fonts/FreeFonts": ensure => directory, mode => 0444, recurse => true, purge => true, source => "puppet:///modules/hadmut/soft/Daten/Fonts/Installation/FreeFonts", }

      This works with a great number of font files, but fails with one particular font:

      Error: Could not set 'file' on ensure: invalid byte sequence in US-ASCII
      Error: Could not set 'file' on ensure: invalid byte sequence in US-ASCII
      Wrapped exception:
      invalid byte sequence in US-ASCII
      Error: /Stage[main]/Hadmut::Application::X11_common/File[/usr/local/share/fonts/FreeFonts/Momоt___.ttf]/ensure: change from absent to file failed: Could not set 'file' on ensure: invalid byte sequence in US-ASCII

      For some reason Puppet assumes that this is an US-ASCII text file, but it should treat this as a binary.
