 This isn't a problem ... createrepo is just letting you know that
non-utf8 data is in a package (almost always in a changelog).

 This has nothing to do with 715108.

 I can't find this commit, and bug 715108 isn't a problem in RHEL-6 atm.
as the createrepo in RHEL-6 doesn't enable libc collapsing (and the yum
side is currently about 4 bugs behind, of which 715108 was the
latest ... so that couldn't happen if createrepo was updated).
