[Python-Dev] Use utf-8 charset for tracker summaries?

The weeky 'Summariy of Python tracker Issues' ('tracker' should be 
capitalized if 'Issues' is) starts with

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

Names sometimes have not-ascii chars, and they do not get properly 
displayed for me with Thunderbird on Windows.  For instance,
   Raúl Núñez de Arenas (Raúl Núñez de Arenas)
is transmitted as
   Ra=C3=BAl N=C3=BA=C3=B1ez de= Arenas
and displayed as
   Raúl Núñez de Arenas

I am rather sure that this does not happen with email sent to me by the 
tracker itself.
