py3: require values in changelog extras to be bytes

Authored by martinvonz on Mar 25 2020, 10:19 PM.



I don't know what happened here because b436059c1cca (py3: use
pycompat.bytestr() on extra values because it can be int, 2019-02-05)
came about b44a47214122 (py3: use string for "close" value in commit
extras, 2018-02-11). Whatever happened, we shouldn't need to convert
the values to bytes now. It's better to not convert because that might
cover up bugs where someone sets a unicode value in the extras and
that works until the unicode value happens to contain non-ascii (at
which point it will fail because bytestr() expects its argument to
be ascii if it's unicode).
