I know that the svn repo is now for legacy purposes only, but I doubt it is intended that the online source browser should raise exceptions.

Hi, here is a report, I found some module markup shows traceback.
UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf8' codec can't decode byte 0xe7 in position 1428: invalid continuation byte
I do not know about latin-1 coding, this is just note what I found at that position It's "\xe7"
... by Fran\xe7o ...
and as I read the traceback, viewvc and pygment assumes utf-8 encoding, its hard-coded.
Other modules which use non- utf8 encoding (searched by grep -r coding: *.py) inspect, pydoc were ok. tarfile, shlex were not.
Excute me for my writting broken English. ---- Ikkei Shimomura
