W national-encoding-in-debconf-template

The named debconf template file should be valid UTF-8, an encoding of the Unicode character set.

There are many ways to convert a file from an encoding like ISO-8859-1; you may for example use "iconv" like:

$ iconv -f ISO-8859-1 -t UTF-8 file > file.new $ mv file.new file

Severity: warning
