Please don't use UTF-8 in po files

Description of Problem:
It makes for really ugly installations :-) Seeing this with the Milan-re0806.0
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Note that this just the po files for anaconda - the reason is the lack of a
utf-8 console for text mode.
To confirm, I've got this right:
All anaconda .po files should be in native encoding.
All other .po files should be in UTF-8 encoding.
I assume this does not just apply to CJK, but EMEA languages also? Of CJK we
only support Japanese for text install. Chinese and Korean should default to
English as we don't have a console solution for them.
Correct on the anaconda side. And yes, it applies to all locales
Seems related to this bug...
During installation of limbo 2 I've got a lot of errors (for each package) on VT 1
** (anaconda : 95) : WARNING ** : Invalid UTF 8 string passed to
and the description of each package which is printed during installation is
tronqued when there are accentuation
My settings :
comps-po and anaconda-po files have been converted to native encoding. This
should resolve this problem.
text installs look ok
