Then, may I write my name in non-ASCII letters (Kanji in EUC-JP
encoding) in Maintainer: field ? Please use ASCII transcription
(for example, ü -> u) for this purpose. Never use non-ASCII
It is ISO-8859-1-language-speaking people's bad habit to use
ISO-8859-1 characters for files which may be read by foreign people.

If all the languages used ISO-8859-1, it would be much easier,
but unfortunately, they do not.
However, fortunately, all popular encodings in the world share ASCII.
