I'm getting warning below from rpmlint about "file-not-utf8".

cduce-devel.x86_64: W: file-not-utf8 
cduce-devel.x86_64: W: file-not-utf8 
cduce-devel.x86_64: W: file-not-utf8 

The AUTHORS file is fair enough - I can use iconv to convert that to 
UTF-8.  However I'm concerned about the HTML files.  These are 
ISO-8859-1 files, and moreover they contain correct Content-Type 
metadata to mark them as such so I can't see there is a problem with 
these two files not being UTF-8.

Do I need to worry about it?
