Description Doncho N. Gunchev 2007-10-04 15:16:28 EDT
Description of problem:
XScreenSaver.ad and XScreenSaver.ad.tail use latin-1 encoding - look 
for 'Copyright . 1991-2006 by', where the dot is latin1 © /(c), the copyright 
sign, in case bugzilla encodings get wrong again/.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xscreensaver-base-5.03-9.fc8, I'm filling against xscreensaver because there's 
no xscreensaver-base.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install xscreensaver-base-5.03-9.fc8
2. cd /etc/xscreensaver
3. grep -R Copyright .

Actual results:
one needs iconv:
grep -R Copyright . | iconv -f latin1

./XScreenSaver.ad.tail:*splash.body.label:              Copyright © 1991-2006 
./XScreenSaver.ad:*splash.body.label:           Copyright © 1991-2006 by

to see this correctly

Expected results:
should not need iconv

Additional info:
Same is true for /usr/bin/xscreensaver-text, xscreensaver-getimage-video and 
xscreensaver-getimage-file, but there's some code that looks using that 
encoding plus some hacks and I can't tell what would it take to convert them 
to UTF-8.
All man pages look OK, © is in UTF-8.

Currently marking as NOTABUG.

* XScreenSaver.ad is really a configuration file, and 
  *splash.body.label string is used in xscreensaver-demo splash
Comment 2 Doncho N. Gunchev 2007-10-05 02:05:30 EDT
Excuse my curiosity, but what does "currently marking as" mean? Can bugzilla 
reopen bugs by itself? I don't really care if this never gets fixed, I'm just 
curious :-)
Comment 3 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-10-05 02:15:41 EDT
That is:

Current XScreenSaver.ad works, and I am not sure this file
can be converted into UTF-8 with no problem (this is not just
a document). It may require some investigation, so I wrote
"for now" I close as NOTABUG.

Will be fixed in 5.03-10.fc{7,8} (with other bugs)
