As noted in the announcement, please feel free to report the issue. We
fixed a lot of encoding errors for pip 10, but it's quite possible
that we missed this as no-one reported it. We'll need clear
instructions on how to reproduce it, as it doesn't fail for me
(Windows 10, pip 10.0.0b1, Python 3.6, Powershell shell):

>py -m pip search kundalini
kundalini (0.4)  - LÖVE-like PyGame API
