There is an LC_DESCRIPTIONS dictionary that has an entry for each
Mailman supported language giving the language name and character set.
Look at the end of Defaults.py.

You can put something like

def _(s):
    return s
add_language('en',    _('English (USA)'),       'utf-8')
del _

in mm_cfg.py. The above would change the character set for US English
from the default us-ascii to utf-8. Note that since you are in this
example giving new values to LC_DESCRIPTIONS[en], this overrides the
entry in Defaults.py.
