The history is that there's been fitful recoding to UTF-8 over the years. About the time I wrote "Source file encoding" (March 2013), I recoded several files. Juanma recoded a bunch of ChangeLogs in March 2008 -- these are the most-relevant to the issue of what should appear in the repository. I assume there are other recodings as well; I haven't kept track.
While we're on the topic of normalization, is it the intent to normalize spelling of author and committer names in the repository? E.g., replace "François_Pinard" with "François Pinard" (no underscore)? Or replace "Richard M. Stallman" and "Richard M Stallman" with "Richard Stallman"? How about email addresses? Perhaps you've already addressed this point but if so I'm afraid I forgot what you wrote.
