Description of problem:
French man pages are still ISO8859-15 encoded.
I have a look in spec file and I saw that only ja pages are converted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
They're converted in the latest -38 release in rawhide.
Are the fr pages really in 8859-15? Or just the 8859-1 (latin1) subset?
I am not sure. Perhaps it is just latin1.
Is this really important?
If yes, the only way to know which encoding is used is to contact the
translators and ask them.
Thank for a so quick answer.
comment 2: Current rawhide versions do convert french to UTF-8. The
spec file assumes the French is encoded in Latin-1 when it builds (and
converts the source to UTF-8). If in fact the pages were encoded in
Latin-9 (ISO-8859-15) and characters from it that were not in Latin-1
were used, they would be converted to UTF-8 incorrectly and it would
be a bug.
