[Mailman-i18n] UTF-8 and PO files

Hi everyone :)
While setting up Pootle with the Mailman PO files, we noticed that a
few long-standing translations are still using non-UTF-8 formats.
(Most likely, UTF-8 was not available when that translation originated.)
While that is entirely up to you, we encourage you to convert your PO
file(s) to UTF-8. This is the standard for FLOSS translation, and will
avoid problems with tools which _assume_ UTF-8.
Fortunately, Pootle does not, but some of the newer tools do. So it
could save you hassles later on.
UTF-8 is the superset of language encodings. It makes more sense for
us all to be using it together. :)
