Hi devs,

few days ago in qgis-developer mailing list we discuss codepage handling
in QGIS and GDAL

Also there is post in this list with related problem

Seems than shapelib supports codepages in CPG file and LDID both for
reading and creating DBFs. But OGR doesn't seem to use or expose that

Our community want to add to the OGR shapefile driver ability to
read/write CPG file and ready to work on this and create a patch.
Any hints and suggestions are welcome. We really need this
