Description Miloslav Trmač 2004-11-25 22:52:22 UTC
Some of the shipped man pages are not in UTF-8, so man has to
guess their encoding
- for some of them (README.$CJK) it guesses wrong
- for all of them it outputs a warning to stderr

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Can anyone ACK to verify this?

ACK, but I'd recode the files in %prep before installing them so that the
corresponding "perldoc foo" get fixed too, not only the manpages.  See patch.
