New submission from Guido van Rossum <guido at python.org>:
The security list received a report about SimpleHTTPServer's list_directory(). It needs to add a charset parameter to the Content-type header. This is already done in Python 3 (where this code lives in http/server.py) but not in any Python 2 versions I can find. A simple backport of the code in Python 3 should hopefully suffice.
I'm marking this tentatively as a release blocker, but I don't see it's necessary to issue an urgent release. It should just be fixed before the next scheduled releases of 2.5, 2.6, 2.7.
