Subject: [PATCH] LICENSES/dual/CC-BY-4.0: Lets switch to utf-8
Date: Fri, 2 Jul 2021 20:29:31 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Lets drop the unicode characters that peeped in and replace with
equivalent utf-8 characters. This makes the CC-BY-4.0 file inline with
rest of license files.

This messes up code such as scripts/ which assumed utf-8
LICENSE files.

Fixes: bc41a7f36469 ("LICENSES: Add the CC-BY-4.0 license")
