Complete output from command python setup.py egg_info:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
      File "/tmp/pip-build-tdp_tggr/coverage/setup.py", line 50, in <module>
        paras = contributors.read().split("\n\n")
      File "/usr/lib/python3.5/encodings/ascii.py", line 26, in decode
        return codecs.ascii_decode(input, self.errors)[0]
    UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc4 in position 846: ordinal not in range(128)

Non ascii chars in CONTRIBUTORS.txt cause the install to fail on Linux. Tested on Ubuntu 16.04.

Can be quickly verified with docker: docker run --rm -it zeroturnaround/python3 pip3 install coverage==4.3
