UTF-8 man pages
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I'm trying to package a simple tool that wants a Japanese string in its man
page. It would appear that currently, man pages use fixed encodings that vary
depending on which locale's man page is being looked up; English uses
ISO-8859-1, so it's not possible to use kanji in one.
Various people on -mentors suggested that this was wrong as there was a plan
in place to convert to using UTF-8 throughout, and that I should bring this up
here; I can't find any references to such a plan on the 'net --- is there one?
What's its status? And what should I do to get my man page working?
