Description Ralf Corsepius 2007-05-22 05:26:53 EDT
Description of problem:
libexif contains a non-utf8/non-ascii encoded file

rpmlint doesn't catch this (check the README for "Lutz". The last name after
Lutz is "Müller", but it is displayed as "M<junk>ller". The file seems to be 
iso8859-X encoded.)

# rpmlint libexif-0.6.13-2.i386.rpm 
E: libexif zero-length /usr/share/doc/libexif-0.6.13/AUTHORS

Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2007-05-22 11:30:54 EDT
Right, due to (probably my) thinko uncompressed doc files were not checked in
0.80 and earlier.  Fixed upstream a week ago, will be in the next release:

$ rpmlint libexif
libexif.x86_64: E: zero-length /usr/share/doc/libexif-0.6.13/AUTHORS
libexif.x86_64: W: file-not-utf8 /usr/share/doc/libexif-0.6.13/ChangeLog
libexif.x86_64: W: file-not-utf8 /usr/share/doc/libexif-0.6.13/COPYING
libexif.x86_64: W: file-not-utf8 /usr/share/doc/libexif-0.6.13/README
