--- Comment #1 from Michael Catanzaro <mcatanzaro at igalia.com> ---
So, we definitely need to use a UTF-8 locale always. That should go without saying. Our platform is not non-UTF-8 safe anymore and I expect there is no shortage of odd bugs caused by using a weird locale.

Anyway, apparently commit-queue can't handle UTF-8. Or couldn't in the past, see bug #71983. So we'll need to test to see if commit queue breaks when we change this.

P.S. Passing C.UTF-8 is a bad idea, because I'm pretty sure that locale is a downstream Debian/Fedora patch. We should be nice to distros that don't have C.UTF-8 by not using it. en_US.UTF-8 is the standard locale nowadays.
