I am Yukiharu YABUKI who I met you in Debcnf 7.

I report to you that Japanese debian people transition default encoding.
Japanse people transtion ja_JP.utf8 in Etch.
If you doubt, please ask Japanse Debian developers.

(1) Please change Japanses encoding from eucJP to utf8

Wrong   :   $charset{'ja'}="euc-jp";
Correct :   $charset{'ja'}="utf8"; or just delete right?

Is this correct ?

Translator's view: EUC-JP is fine.

All the same, UTF-8 is the standard, so we translators should be using it or working towards it, don't you think?

Apt's view: apt requires utf-8 Packages.gz

The problem is that DDTP feeds apt with EUC-JP encoded file whereas
APT now expects UTF-8 and tries to iconv from there.
