Looks to be triggered by a 3rd party packaging bug.  Fedora's packaging
guidelines require everything to be utf-8 encoded, and there are a couple of
non-utf encoded bytes in the RPM description.

I fixed this in a70532c2fb3bcec8d10fcaa41dd276626b986b1b by replacing decoding
errors with question marks.
