1 Hi!
3 I'm using UTF-8 encoding in my system. The main problem is, that lots
4 of /usr/share/man/* and /usr/share/doc/* files are iso8859-2 encoded (as my
5 LINGUAS is set to pl). I think, that Portage itself should recode all the
6 files, which go to /usr/share/man/ and /usr/share/doc/ directories to UTF-8
7 by default. There's also a problem with Groff, which is unable to show
8 unicode chars correctly. I made a package to solve it
9 (, but I think it's a
10 bit dirty hack.
11 So:
12 Are there any plans, to make Portage install all the docs in desired
13 encoding?
14 Are there any plans, to do something with Groff?
