requestsync crashed with UnicodeDecodeError in edit_report()

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntu-dev-tools

This crash occurred after I responded "yes" to "Do you want to edit the report [y/N]?" after you initially describe the sync rationale. The debian/changelog entry in the sync report did have special characters, which is what I'm assuming that this crash is due to.
