* [PATCH] [rfc] drop "coding: UTF-8" header

[-- Warning: decoded text below may be mangled, UTF-8 assumed --]
[-- Attachment #0: Type: text/plain; charset=8bit, Size: 9327 bytes --]

From: Mike Frysinger <vapier@chromium.org>

This header is used inconsistently -- man pages are UTF-8 encoded
but not setting this marker.  It's only respected by the man-db
package, and seems a bit anachronistic at this point when UTF-8
is the standard default nowadays.
