Issue #15449 has been updated by jeremyevans0 (Jeremy Evans).

Backport changed from 2.4: UNKNOWN, 2.5: UNKNOWN to 2.5: DONTNEED, 2.6: REQUIRED
File range-case-cover-string.patch added

I agree that this is a bug, and not the intended behavior now that `Range#===` calls `Range#cover?` in most cases.  Hopefully nobu can confirm.  Attached is a patch that fixes the behavior.

I think this should be backported to 2.6, assuming this behavior is not intentional.

Bug #15449: Range#=== is not using cover in Ruby 2.6

```
irb(main):105:0> ('A'..'Z').cover? 'ANA'
=> true
irb(main):106:0> ('A'..'Z') === 'ANA'
=> false

```

Is this expected? Should `===` use cover according to NEWS in Ruby 2.6?
