Good point.  The change of "Encoding" from being a required key to an
optional key whose presence generates a warning suggests that all of the
results in the db for this specific test (desktop-file-validate as
reported by rpmlint) are meaningless.  I've filed this as
https://fedorahosted.org/rpmgrok/ticket/18

Hopefully at least some of the other rpmlint tests recorded in the db
are still useful though.

Thanks
