Description of problem:
Encoding of fedora-gpodder.desktop file is completely broken, quite certainly it isn't UTF-8. No idea how to translate other than CS strings:
Name[cs]=gPodder podcast čtečka
Comment[cs]=Umožňuje stahování audio/video podcastu a synchornizaci s MP3 přehrávačem
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
hmm, I'm going to have to take this up with upstream, translations are being done in upstream.
Is the packaging process messing up the encoding? Can you pull the upstream source tarball and see if the encoding is sane in the desktop file there?

gpodder.desktop from the upstream tarball

Most likely. This looks perfect

other .desktop file
and this one as well
in the spec file I'm using iconv -f latin1 -t utf-8 to force the encoding. This maybe a piece of cruft needed in a very old version of gpodder. I'll do a build with that removed and see if it behaves better.
I think this fixed it...see if the encoding is better in:
If it looks good I can push this into testing today.

This should be wrong ... upstream files are perfect UTF-8 already.
Yes, it is perfect. Thanks.
