Make generated files handle Unicode characters
This patch handles a case where some of the files used to generate COPYING, were containing unicode strings, which could lead to a failure when building sid package. The code now will check the type of the string before writing to the file, and if needed it will transform it to the appropriate format. Test-Information: Generated the sid package with package_all_platforms script with no problems. Created a debian sid box and tested the installation of the generated packages. Validated the output generated in Windows 10 and Ubuntu 16.04 builds through the "About" dialog in Swift. Change-Id: I05e518b758f316d9fbf23c1079be5a462e75106c
