[Pkg-mailman-hackers] Bug#668304: mailman: Translations should use unicode charset

Package: mailman
Version: 1:2.1.13-5
Severity: wishlist
Tags: l10n

The mailman translations should use uncide as character set instead of the
language-specific local character sets. I see no reason not to use unicode
nowadays, and after some manual conversion as described on
mailman is working fine with unicode as charset for the German and English
