> Dear community,

> A controversial aspect of this proposal is which file encoding should

> help us to come to a well-founded decision.

> These are the two possible directions to go:

> a) use fixed UTF-8 encoding
>
> b) use same encoding as source files

> Approach a) is simple and sould work for everybody, since any character

> Approach b) is more subtle and mimics the behaviour of javadoc tool.
> Since

> pom.xml contains characters that can't be output with source files
> encoding).
