Issue #4489 has been updated by James M. Lawrence.


Yes, but it's not only about internal consistency -- the current behavior causes real problems.

The patch in http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/4489#note-7 should be self-explanatory (no English required) given that UTF-8-MAC doesn't exist and that UTF-8 and UTF8-MAC are different encodings. What is Yui's objection to the patch? I don't see any downside.

Backport #4489: [PATCH] Encodings with /-(unix|dos|mac)\Z/

=begin
The *-dos and *-mac meta-encodings were not being recognized. utf-8-mac is a special case since it corresponds to a real encoding; its meta-encoding is utf-8-mac-mac.
=end
