Emacs allows you to define local variables in a file, which can be a
very useful feature (for example, as here, to define the latex preamble
on export).  It does however open a potential security hole, probably
allowing the execution of arbitrary elisp.  So when opening a file
that defines a local variable, Emacs warns you.  If you know it's safe
(because you defined it yourself) you can add it to the trusted
list, so you won't get asked every time.
