The charset is hardcoded to "UTF-8", which should be the default
encoding for Git commit messages and CGit does attempt to transcode Git
messages to the correct encoding.

Are you seeing '??' in the commit message or in blob/tree content?

Do you have a public repository that is exhibiting these symptoms?
