I will attach and patch to cvs-devel, that will add an patch and modify the
specfile to apply the patch.

Btw. there is a huge number of unused patches in the devel dir, you can list
them with "make unused-patches", maybe you want to remove them.

Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2008-01-06 03:33:59 UTC
This patch will need constant updating when new ChangeLog entries appear. What I

Also I wrote a patch for cvs/the spec to convert the documentation to utf8 with
recode (which allows inplace conversion which is afaik not possible with iconv)
