Issue #6679 has been updated by mame (Yusuke Endoh).


Clay Trump,

I'm happy to inform you that matz has (basically) accepted your
proposal.

But not that the decision may be cancelled if the compatibility
impact is considered serious.
Naruse-san will implement and experiment it.

Feature #6679:  Default Ruby source file encoding to utf-8
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/6679#change-28316

Target version: 


Let's change the default encoding for Ruby source files from US-ASCII
to UTF-8 in Ruby 2.0

??? Convention over Configuration
??? Ruby 1.9 forced encoding for code that was not pure ASCII, so
existing codebase already has magic comments.


In Ruby 2.0, "# encoding: utf-8" can be the default.
