I'm all for consistency and UTF-8 everywhere, but in this case it brings
absolutely no benefit. This will just result in package updates
reverting the encoding to ISO-8859-1. In the end this will not really
advance the UTF-8 cause.

This is where the default encoding is specified for jh_build if you want
to modify it:

Maven doesn't fallback to ASCII, it just uses the default platform
encoding, and on the builders it's ASCII. The day the builders switch to
UTF-8 Maven will also use it by default.
