Affects: epel-all [bug 1293581]

Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2015-12-22 11:10:28 UTC
> Upstream patch:

Dubious. The change to conv_jistoeuc() disables the loop, because (out-outbuf) will be zero and hence the while-condition will never be true.

Apart from that, the patch is part of 3.13.1 which is pending on its way into updates-testing already.
