Issue #6494 has been reported by drbrain (Eric Hodel).

----------------------------------------
Feature #6494: Send Accept-Encoding for all HTTP requests
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/6494

Author: drbrain (Eric Hodel)
Status: Open
Priority: Normal
Assignee: 
Category: lib
Target version: 2.0.0


This patch builds atop #6492 to enable Accept-Encoding by default for all HTTP requests that permit bodies.  (Without #6492 it will break Net::HTTP.)

This patch moves setting the Accept-Encoding header from Net::HTTP#get to Net::HTTP::GenericRequest#initialize.
