Hello guys,

When you edit text files, please stick to ASCII as long as possible.
We are likely to have some problems with non-ASCII letters like
this case (the editor or whatever related somehow terminated at
'ł', U+0142, which is even not in Latin1).

As long as you guys use non-ASCII letters, this kind of accident
could happen continuously (unless asking people to edit
source code and ChangeLogs in binary editors makes sense).

I can write my Kanji (Chinese) name in my ChangeLog entries but I
dare not do since it will mess non-CJK people and I cannot be
that proud of my Kanji name in front of you guys' cost.

If you guys say we should still stick to Latin1, never write
Jarosław's name on ChangeLog as is. (Does it sound cruel? but that's
the consequence that "use Latin1" results for him. Face the reality.)

Atsushi Eno
