I understand that, the above revert was mostly informational. Reading
the other bug, I see the reasoning behind not changing behavior. But it
seems like this also changes behavior, even if only within Unstable, and
needs some follow-up as phpmyadmin in Unstable will fail to rebuild
(verified just now in the chroot).
Given that this appears in an upstream test that is making an assumption
about \\TRANSLIT support from iconv (meaning that the behavior they are
testing for might be consistent across distributions), I'm not sure what
the best next step would be. Note that the phpmyadmin tests were only
relatively recently enabled at build-time, so that may be why this
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
