Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 194599
ja_JP help pages are garbled
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:25 EST
The whole ja_JP web interface is written in EUC-JP, but in the .spec file, the
help files are converted to UTF-8:
for a in `ls help/$LOCALE/ 2>/dev/null` ; do
iconv $SKIPINVALID -f $CHARSET -t utf-8 help/$LOCALE/$a > $a.new &&
mv $a.new help/$LOCALE/$a
Resulting in a completely garbled help file.
The attached patch converts the UTF-8 back to EUC-JP before showing it. Another
work-around is obviously to not convert the file from EUC-JP in the first place.

We aren't sure why the interface is in EUC-JP in the first place. This requires
Trying this by avoiding conversion of the help file... Will test.
Testing in FC with squirrelmail-1.4.7-2.
