Ack!  Some of the po files were not UTF-8 encoded.  I have converted those po
files and rebuild the package.  Thanks for your report.

QA, please verify that this works with 1.0.1-4.
Comment 2 Richard Allen 2002-08-30 10:23:20 EDT
I just did a fresh checkout of the translation CVS.  Firstboot is now UTF-8 
but I still have many .po files in ISO-8859-1.   Are they also supposed to be 
converted to UTF-8 ? 
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2003-05-25 10:24:13 EDT
Yes, everything should be in UTF-8 format.
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2003-05-25 10:31:46 EDT
There is a stack of 64 bugs that have been in Modified state for a long period
of time.  I am closing these as Rawhide now.  If you find that the issue is not
fixed, please reopen this report.
