Salt file.recurse source file not found (file encoding issue)

So I was running this:

/var/www/jj-web-1-www.jj5.net-sixsigma:
  file.recurse:
    - clean: True
    - user: root
    - group: root
    - dir_mode: 755
    - file_mode: 644
    - source: salt://inst/mediawiki-1.29
    - require:
      - pkg: apache2

And getting an error like this:

The issue was that the source files mentioned weren’t in UTF-8 format. To convert the files I ran, e.g.:

$ iconv -f WINDOWS-1252 -t UTF-8//TRANSLIT < module.audio-video.mpeg.php.bak > module.audio-video.mpeg.php

(Actually I couldn’t get the ‘iconv’ command to work so I edited manually in Vim)
