Or using the `--encoding=utf-8' option in doc/Makefile(.in|.am) in the
related program call.

It should be possible to remove the 0.8.5-branch via cvs admin command.
But if the fix for the problem would be included to a
new-upstream-version upload, the changelog entry could stay there.

It's currently in the debian-xml-sgml group's CVS, so I thought, the
group is already responsible. I'm currently busy with docbook-xsl and
docbook-defguide, but when the current updates are finished, I would try
to package the latest upstream version, if nobody has objections.
