tamil translation in application is not using UTF-8 encoding
Last modified: 2014-03-25 20:51:17 EDT
Description of problem:
Some of the tamil strings in ta.po is using the wrong encoding (TSCII
instead of UTF-8)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run application in LANG=ta_IN.UTF-8
some strings are broken because of the encoding
should display all of the strings in UTF-8

Please find attached the latest copy of the po file.
Just wanted to follow up if you have any timeframe on rebuilding the package for
RHEL4. It would be great to include the fixed tamil translation in because tamil
is one of our official supported languages. Thanks!
I have built gail-1.8.0-3.el4 in dist-4E-U2 now.
Confirmed fixed in EL4 with gail-1.8.0-3.el4. However, in FC4, gail-1.8.3-1, the
encoding is still broken.
I can't quite believe that, as the only difference between the .po
files is the creation date.
