As you might know, the db:create rake task creates utf8 databases for
MySQL, Postgres and SQLite. http://dev.rubyonrails.org/ticket/8448
The only problem is that you need to manually add the encoding to your
database config file.
Because I'm lazy and I believe most people are, I submitted a patch to
add the utf-8/unicode encoding to the auto generated database.yml
file. A lot of people still ignore that you can define the encoding to
use and I think that this patch should help.
What do you think?
