[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. :)
