Got a handle on the Android webapp static file problems (no, they were not really encoding problems!), and hopefully that's all fixed now. Also, only 3 modules use Char8 now. And updated the git-annex backport. That's all I did today.
Meanwhile, a complete ZSH completion has been contributed by Schnouki. And, Ben Gamari sent in a patch moving from the deprecated MonadCatchIO-transformers library to the exceptions library.
